Owning a pet is a big commitment, lasting years. Children and parents often don’t think about the practical and financial aspects of pet owning, such as giving it sufficient housing and protection, paying for vets fees, pet insurance etc.
Are Guinea Pigs the Right Pet for You encourages responsible pet ownership from a young age, outlining the needs of guinea pigs and the responsibilities of owners, in a fun and authoritative way. The reader is the detective, assigned to investigate and work out whether the pet is right for them based on its needs and, if not, identify which pet is a more appropriate choice.
The book includes a virtual pet research section where children are encouraged to live with an imaginary rabbit with a real pet’s needs for a month before acquiring a pet.
