They're really great but are they also adorably pretty, like said puppy and kitten? Maybe not.
These gorgeous hard cover books with dust jacket are a decidedly artsy way to learn the basics of pet care. Featuring gorgeous monochrome colour palettes and line illustrations, they are a work of art in themselves.
As for content--also good!
Sections include what to think about before buying a pet, the right type for you (pedigree or mongrel?), different breeds, preparing for your new arrival, how to choose a kitten or puppy, bringing them home, house-training, feeding, obedience, exercise, ways to keep them occupied/games to play, grooming and health.
The recommended age for these books is 3 - 6 but considering the text level, they would suit slightly older kids--or at least independent readers.
