Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-- A definitive guide for young readers, this is so thorough that even those experienced in raising rabbits would find it helpful. Like Simmons's Your Sheep (Garden Way, 1992), the main text covers the inner two-thirds of each page. A vertical line separates that from the outer remaining space; there, terms are defined, additional information appears, and important facts are repeated. Some of the black-and-white illustrations also appear here. The smoothly flowing, second-person narration covers such topics as selecting the breed, choosing the first rabbit, handling, housing, feeding, health, breeding, care of newborns, marketing, and management. Drawings, charts, and barely average black-and-white photos appear throughout. A ``helpful sources'' section offers several mail-order rabbitry suppliers and a complete listing of each state's Cooperative Extension Service. The volume concludes with an extensive glossary and index. FFA members, 4-Hers, and pet owners will be pleased to find this title on the shelf.-- Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS

    Great 4-h starter book

    I thought this book was really good for a 4-H kid.Its helpful,but personally I think its not for an open or breed shower.I think that because it really to me looked like it was for a begginer.if you are starting rabbits this book is perfect!
