Editorial Reviews

From 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.

This book told me lots about rabbits and made up my mind to breed them. This book is filled with lots of good information, but I think its best quality is the breeding part of it

Recently added to the New York State 4-H list of recommended books for the Rabbit Project Curriculum, Nancy Searle has done an excellent job of organizing information about the care of rabbits. Well-written, but easy enough for a child to understand, as well as adults.

I breed rabbits and I continually come back to this book for reference. It is a great book and well worth it, whether you are going to breed, show, or just own a rabbit as a pet. I recomend it to everyone.

I have read through this book several times at rabbit shows, and various places where it has been offered for sale. This book is a wonderful read for children interested in breeding and showing rabbits. It talks about breeds that are easy for children to handle, and how to properly breed and show them. It also teaches proper animal husbandry. This is a book that every 4h, ffa, and ARBA youth member should read. Contrary to the negative comments that were left about it, it is not abuse. Nor does it teach it. It is different, and offers an alternative way to keep your rabbit. This book is not geared towards keeping altered rabbits as house pets, because you can't show an altered pet per ARBA rules. This is for those interested in showing their animal, anbd breeding high qulaity, purebred rabbits. I see hundreds of thousands of rabbits, shown by kids, at any given weekend at shows. Many of these animals are kept as beloved pets. None of them are abused. Breeders, esp children, that abuse their bunnies are few and far between.

We love this book. Such a well written, informative book. Great for children and adults alike.
Condition was as stated by seller and great for the price.
Even full price this book is completely worth every cent that you pay.
Wonderful for 4H projects or just further learning about rabbits.

I raise Mini Rex rabbits, and this was the first book I found at my library about raising rabbits. I will use this book to help me until I have most everything memorized in the rabbit breeding/marketing/caring industry. It is very definitive, yet simple for somewhat younger kids. Also, you can visit my website at kaninrabbitry.webs.com.
Nancy Searle did a WONDERFUL JOB and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for ENYONE!

i have a small Netherland dwarf lop named opal. i had no idea how to train her what type of cage to get her or even what to feed her when i first got her and this book really helped me. i would recommend this book to anyone with a rabbit, who needs information on anything from how to build a nice cage at a good price to how to breed rabbits.
