Synopsis

Gordon's Guide to Caring for Your Guinea Pigs by Isabel Thomas

Titles in the Pets' Guides series teach young readers how to care responsibly for their chosen pet. However, in a unique spin, each book is written from the point of view of one of the animals themselves, thus also allowing the books to be used to teach perspective. In this book, Gordon the Guinea Pig reveals how readers should go about choosing pet guinea pigs, what supplies they will need, how to make a new pet guinea pig feel at home, and how to properly care for pet guinea pigs, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a guinea pig cage clean. Text in the book is accompanied by clear, labelled photographs to further reinforce key concepts.
