Synopsis

Is My Hamster Wild? The Secret Lives of Hamsters, Gerbils and Guinea Pigs by Rain Newcomb, Rose McLarney

When we think of hamsters, we imagine them domesticated, in cages, running around on exercise wheels. But are they an everyday pet or wild creature? From gerbils in Africa to guinea pigs in South America, these popular creatures are found wild all over the world. This newest volume in Lark's superb science series - which includes the award-winning Is My Dog a Wolf? - lets kids take an up-close look at where these rodents live, what they eat, their families, how they travel and communicate and other fascinating behaviours. (Not only will children learn more about these animals in nature, they'll get a better understanding of their tame cousins at the same time). Most of the spreads are self-contained, so kids can either read from start to finish, or flip through and find out all about something specific. Sidebars, lots of engaging captions, bold headers, blurbs and plenty of big, entertaining pictures of animals in action communicate concepts quickly and capture the attention.
