What animal is born with teeth and fur and their eyes opened? A guinea pig, of course! Some guinea pigs have fur that is silky while others have fur that is rough. Also, their fur can be different colors or grow in patterns of circles. These interesting facts make reading this book fun for the young reader. Find out what guinea pigs like to chew on besides vegetables. Watch out, it is something in your house! The bright pictures let the reader see how cute these creatures are! This book is plainly written for the young reader to understand. There is a glossary in the back to help with terms that might be difficult. Also included in the book is a web site to go to for further information. This book would be useful in the classroom when talking about animals in stories or science.
