Synopsis

Squeak's Guide to Caring for Your Pet Rats or Mice by Isabel Thomas, Rick Peterson

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, Squeak the Mouse reveals how readers should go about choosing pet rats or mice, what supplies they will need, how to make a new pet rat or mouse feel at home, and how to properly care for pet rats or mice, including feeding, exercising, and keeping cages clean. Text in the book is accompanied by clear, labelled photographs to further reinforce key concepts.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
