"Stories Rabbits Tell"
By Susan Davis and Margo Demello
I was delighted to read this book right from the beginning. For those who have never had a rabbit, it will make you want one. For those who have a rabbit already, you will be happy to see a book that deals with rabbit issues for the first time. It explains rabbits in their truest nature. It's refreshing to see someone write an entire book dedicated to the history, socialization, modern day truths etc. Rabbit Savvy owners will say "Why didn't I write this?".
There were some amazing facts that I never knew contained within its pages. It discusses the rabbit as a pet that we are learning to integrate into our homes...as free roaming animals. It discussed the individual behavior of rabbits that make them so family oriented. It also talks about wild rabbits and hares and gives a great detailed commentary on the differences each contains. It also talks about Rabbits used as food and clothing...I did have to skip some of the parts because of the gruesome details but enjoyed the book without them. Parts of the book do start to drag a little but the information collected for the reader is amazing. I highly recommend this book to rabbit owners or enthusiasts. It is the kind of book that you can read before you get a rabbit and find it wonderful, but then own the rabbit for a year and read it again and say "wow".
House Rabbit Handbook
By Marinell Harriman
A wonderful basic handbook for learning to live with your house rabbit. There are in-depth chapters regarding bun health, living, socialization, house training etc. It covers a lot of different info and you will need to do more reading elsewhere to gain extensive knowledge on each topic...but when you are just learning...this is an excellent book to start with. It will help you determine further questions that you have.
King Murray's Royal Tail
By Kathy Smith
Great book for all ages regarding bunnies. It revolves around the life of on bunny separated from his mom, sold as an easter gift and the travels he takes after being rejected by the first family. It's a short read but cute and I did get a little teary in the end.
Rabbit Health in the 21st Century
By: Kathy Smith
I am a firm believer that every true bun owner should have this book. This book does't even need a review...as there is not one page in it that does not contain useful information for your bunny. The information is extremely practical and provides an insight into problems that may arise with your little rabbit friend. In fact it should be a requirement. From choosing a bun vet to adding a second bunny...The abc's are covered!
Lop Rabbits as Pets
By: Sandy Cook
This is my first thumbs down book. I will agree with her that Lops tend to make a good pet due to the fact that they have never been raised for meat or fur..they have been raised primarily for companionship. She lost me within the first ten pages when she started to say that lop kits bond with humans while other breeds of kits skirt away. In all fairness, I probably didn't get a lot of it because my buns and I are urban/city dwellers. This book is not a fair assessment for rabbits as pets...I have known lops to be tougher than other types of buns and vice versa. It comes from environment, not breeding anymore. The information is outdated.....This review comes from an avid lop lover.
