Barron's Educational Series
Barron's Educational Series presents “My Rat, 2nd Edition,” by Gerd Ludwig. The book, part of the My Pet Series, portrays rats as good-natured, intelligent and easily trained, making them a fine choice for both adults and children who plan to keep a caged pet, the publisher reports. The book advises on all aspects of the animal's growth, health and dietary needs, and discusses training, playtime activities, toys, cages and related equipment. The text is accessible to older children as well as adults, and is complemented with attractive color photos on most pages, the publisher adds.
