Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mammals come in all shapes and sizes. Some walk on four legs, some swim with fins, some fly, and others run on two legs. This is a book in a "First Facts: Exploring the Animal Kingdom" designed to teach young readers traits that define the major animal groups. For example, one heading in the book says, "Mammals have hair." Then the text (36 words) describes the purposes of hair. The picture is of a white artic fox hiding from predators in the snow. The fun fact on that page says that the hair on the fox turns colors in the spring so that it can better hide in its surroundings. The series is also helpful for young readers who are just starting to read on their own. The large font size, simple words, amusing layouts and large pictures help the make the book more interesting than just the information that is contained in the text. (Although that information is also very good.) A first or second grade science class could benefit by having these books in the classroom. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
