Children's Literature - Krisan MurphyPristine photographs of yawning, smiling, cuddling, feeding, posing, running and all around adorable-looking baby carnivores fill these pages. Scientific explanations of the body structure of a mammal is outlined, as well as the meaning of a warm-blooded animal. Eleven topics are covered in this ideal book for the curious early reader and researcher. The two-page chapters include Carnivora Families, Mammal Bodies, Where do they live?, and Learning to be predators. In the picture of a lion’s gaping jaw, students have an ideal view of this mammal’s canine teeth. Students learn that raccoons and coatis are not strict carnivores, because they eat mice, birds, frogs, as well as plants. The furry mammals are shown in various habitatsthe Savanna, the jungle, the Arctic, and even in the midst of a waterfall. Details of these specific families of mammals are highlighted: the cat carnivores, weasel, raccoon, mongoose, bear, seal, and the sea lion. Key words are in bold typeset and a picture index is included at the end of the book. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy; Ages 3 to 6.
