Grades 4-7. The Understanding and Caring for Your Pet series gives detailed instructions on how to raise your animal choice--what to do, what not to do, and how to handle problems--and in many cases offers readers insight into different breeds. Parakeets addresses all the basics of bird care, including food, cage options and accessories, how to spot illnesses, and a list of weekly care tasks. One downside of the series is the small typeface, which is a surprising choice since the text often does not fill the page. But young readers, curious about their new pets, will probably be willing to continue reading because of all the useful information they will be learning about the animals. Cooper, Ilene. 128p.
