The Facts, but Fun!
Owning a pet is a big commitment, lasting years. Children and parents often don't think about the practical and financial aspects of pet ownership, such as providing it sufficient housing and protection, paying for vets fees, pet insurance, etc. In a fun and authoritative way, 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.
Be a Pet Detective
The reader will be a detective, assigned to investigate and work out whether a guinea pig is right for them based on its needs and, if not, identify what pet is a more appropriate choice. The book includes a virtual pet research section where children are encouraged to live with an imaginary guinea pig with a real pet's needs for a month before acquiring one.
