What is a good pet for my small children?

My children, ages 5 and 7 want a pet. I was thinking of starting with a small animal. What is a good choice?

First be sure your children are ready to handle a pet and will be kind and gentle. Rabbits, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish - all are good choices. Pets teach children responsibility and caring for all types of creatures. Never leave your children unattended with a small pet or any pet.
