In Rats, early readers will learn all about the responsibilities of having a rat and find out how they can keep their pet healthy and happy. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully levelled text will engage emergent readers as they discover what it takes to be a pet owner. A labeled diagram helps readers understand what a rat needs, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about pet rats online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Rats also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index. Rats is part of Jump!'s My First Pet series.
