Today over at Wrapped in Foil blog we are being nostalgic for our pet guinea pigs and sharing Gordon’s Guide to Caring for Your Guinea Pigs by Isabel Thomas.
Guinea pigs are really cute and make great first pets. In the book, Gordon the cartoon guinea pig (that’s him in the bottom left corner of the cover) guides children through the ins-and-outs of adopting and caring for a pet guinea pig.
The text is gently humorous, clear and concise. As an experienced guinea pig keeper, I can say it does a really good job of covering what a beginning pet owner would need to know, including the fact that guinea pigs do better when kept with other guinea pigs because they are social and that guinea pigs require special pelleted food with vitamin C added.
Be sure to read Gordon’s Guide to Caring for Your Guinea Pigs if you are considering adding guinea pigs to your family!
