Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5 - Jeffrey combines clear texts with endearing full-color photographs. Better for young researchers than the "ASPCA Pet Care Guides" (DK, 2001), these books include history, advice on choosing a pet, taking care of it, and preventing problems. Photographs appear frequently along with inserts of fast facts or pointers. Some bias against pet stores is evident, and readers are encouraged to spay or neuter their pets. They are told never to hit their pet in Cats, where the author insists that felines can also be trained to come when called and possibly even to use the toilet. In Dogs, only praise techniques are recommended for training, using sophisticated vocabulary like "eliminate" and "separation anxiety." Horses includes information on the expense of buying and housing a horse as well as feeding and caring for one. Bias is again reflected in advice on having a vet euthanize an old or ill animal. Information in all three titles is more focused than in entries in the "Nature's Children" series (Grolier) or "Perfect Pets" series (Marshall Cavendish). - Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI

From Booklist

Reviewed with Laura S. Jeffrey's Horses.

Gr. 3-5. These titles in the American Humane Pet Care Library series, produced in association with the American Humane Association, offer children solid information about pet selection and care at a level they can understand. Many endearing photos--some filling the pages, others set in small boxes--make these books fun to look at, and kids who are in the market for a pet will settle in to learn about how to interact with their animals. In addition to the usual lessons in cat care, Cats offers advice about implanting microchips for identification, keeping cats out of trouble, and dealing with cat allergies. horses acknowledges up front that horses are expensive, but the book assumes that the reader will be getting one and presents information accordingly. Still, children who are only taking riding lessons will also find much to read--and dream--about. Each book has a glossary, a short bibliography, and a list of Web sites to lead kids forward.
