Sugar gliders are social animals, but they aren t your usual pet. These cute, cuddly, gliding marsupials were first brought to the US in 1993, and have since become wildly popular. As small as a grain of rice when they are born, these exotics only grow to be 3 to 5 ounces, which makes them perfect to tuck away in your pocket! If you are looking for an affectionate, unique addition to your family, a sugar glider might just be for you! This title will allow students to refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Gr 2-4-This collection of exotic pets introduces these animals, covering history, natural habitat, care, and characteristics both positive and negative. Restrictions on ownership and any special housing and health care requirements are carefully pointed out. The animals' personalities are described, and information on bonding and communication is provided. A short list of "Things to Think About..." encapsulates all the issues and concludes each book. Supplementary material includes a nicely organized set of "Before & After Reading Activities" and "Show What You Know" questions that can be used for reading comprehension instruction. Photos frequently incorporate humans along with the animals. Each volume includes a spread with a full-body shot of the animal with body parts and physical traits identified. "Fun Fact" and "Pet Pointer" boxes appear where needed. VERDICT Well written, with a clean design, these titles will be useful for educators and popular with potential pet owners.α(c) Copyright 2011.

STARRED REVIEW: "After flipping through the utterly adorable full-color photos of cute creatures in the You Have a Pet What?! series, youngsters might want to ditch their doggies and rush to their nearest exotic-pets breeder. . . . Sugar Glider doesn't soften the realities of owning these delicate creatures: they require several hours of active attention per night. . . . there are enough fascinating and informative facts to keep readers enthralled. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." -Booklist, August 2015
