    My little dude loves the pictures of animals and I love all the tidbits of information we've read in this book. It's a short read but packed full of information just enough for young minds to digest.

    A fun and fascinating book! I learned a lot about how animals throughout history and how they became housepets. Very appealing photographs and colorful graphics and lettering. Humor without being cloying or juvenile. "Remember: animal = pet is an equation that took people a long time to solve. Animal = worker + companion + food-on-foot was more like it." The reading level is a bit challenging for the intended age group. A glossary might have been nice for words like avian or hierarchy. Good index and other nonfiction text features.After discussing wild vs. domestic animals and the evolution of pets throughout history, Keenan devotes chapters to cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, mice, ferrets, birds, fish, lizards, and snakes. A chapter on eternal rest for pets rounds up the book. I loved all the interesting trivia and the low-down on all the pets of royalty and U.S. Presidents. Queen Victoria had 88 pets during her lifetime!

    I enjoyed this book very very much. It gave me insight as to how some pets and animals came to be together. I learned a lot about famous people through history and how they got and named some of their pets. I even learned why some of them chose the pets they did choose. I learned a lot of fascinating facts about cats as well as dogs and different dog breeds. I really love all animals especially dogs and really enjoyed all of the nice pictures of all the animals. I didn't just learn about cats and dogs. The author taught me a lot about birds, rodents, fish, lizards , snakes and many other animals. I also learned about pet cemetery's and how they came to be. Some of the facts I found most interesting were those about past American presidents and the pets their families had. This is a great book for any animal lover or anyone who just enjoys learning new things!

    Did you know that there are more pets than people in America? It's true! And more than half of those pets are fish.This photo-filled book gives us a history of our furry, slobbery, scaly, and whiskery friends. It starts with an overview of people's views and uses for domestic animals. The animals that were first kept for work or food eventually became some of our closest friends. After that overview, we get a closer look at the different kinds of pets: cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, fish, etc... each animal has its own history with people. Hand this one to the animal-lovers in your life.

    Humane educators won't want to miss this fun nonfiction selection that discusses the history of the animals we call our best friends. This would be an especially nice choice for a student writing a report. (I appreciated the comment about how the widespread hatred and extermination of cats in Europe helped the rodent-hosted bubonic plague to spread; a point that has been made by Animal People News for years.)

    This book is not only interesting, but relevant to most, if not all, of the students in my class. Some of the weird facts or superstitions that used to surround pets will be fascinating to students and will ask them to consider why our traditions are the way they are today.

    This is a great overview of this history of animal domestication, the role of pets in culture & society (happily, with a number of items that are not from Western history!) and a close-up look at many common kinds of pets. Great for young animal lovers!

    p. 5 - number of pets vs. number of people (more pets than people!)p. 7 - number of types of pets (guess which we own most of? more fish than all other types combined!)

    Lots of enjoyable and interesting tidbits about our furry/feathered/fined friends and well-referenced. A rather strange and abrupt ending, though.

    Great informational book for students interested in people and animals. Bright, colorful book with pictures and photographs that grab the readers attention.

    Beautiful pictures and layout, but the language is a bit irksome. I would want to impart on a child that "owning a pet" and sharing one's home and life with an animal are two very different things.
