Horn Book Review

Basic information about the history of each animal, supplies and materials needed to successfully keep the animal, and how to care for and train it are covered in the books in this series. Each paragraph is numbered, representing the 101 "facts," but the text makes most sense read sequentially. Clear photographs showing appealing pictures of the animals decorate the pages but usually arenÆt labeled. Bib., glos., ind.
