Giggle's Guide to Caring for Your Gerbils 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, Giggle the Gerbil reveals how readers should go about choosing pet gerbils, what supplies they will need, how to make a new pet gerbil feel at home, and how to properly care for pet gerbils, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a gerbil cage clean. Text in the book is accompanied by clear, labelled photographs to further reinforce key concepts.
