This book is a really great overview of raising a large variety of farm animals, including rabbits, goats, sheep, a variety of poultry, pigs, honeybees and more. For all of the chapters, the book has very valuable illustrations, is fairly well laid out, and the design is very sharp. I would recommend this book as a starter for anyone interested in taking on different farm animals or wanting to learn a bit more about them. For instance, I learned that raising goats seemed a bit out of my reach, but keeping honeybees was doable for my time and expertise. To raise any one of these animals, I'd highly recommend getting specialized books on that particular animal - otherwise, this book won't cover it all. Still, it'll make a great gift and is an interesting read.
