K-Gr 3—A picture-book format and no-fuss texts make these titles excellent introductions to some of the considerations of pet ownership. Readers follow a specific child from pet selection to successful long-term care. The mixed-media illustrations have a computer-generated look to them, and the texts are clear against the boldly illustrated pages. Even better, it is always at the top of the page, so there is no darting around from factoid to factoid. "Tip" boxes make appearances, but they are clearly marked, always in the same place, and always in reference to nearby content. Each volume includes a detailed look at the different parts of each animal.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
