Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book in the “Living Things” series takes a close-up look at mammals that populate our world. Kids will be excited to learn that human beings are also considered mammals, along with cats, dogs, and some farm animals. The cover photograph of a cute chimpanzee would catch the attention of any child. The text neatly explains how mammals differ from other animals and shows the unique characteristic of some of them. There are as many as 4,600 different types of mammals in the world from the smallest to the largest. Children will also find it interesting that mammals cover everything from bats to whales, and that baby whales are born under water and helped to the surface by their mothers so they can take their first breath of air. There are also informative blocks of information scattered throughout the book under the headings of “WOW!” Photographs and illustrations are well placed on the pages and contribute more detailed information.
