Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Mammals, hairy or furry animals that give live birth and feed their young with milk, have lived on Earth a very long time. The first ones were small and secretive, not wanting to make their existence known to the dinosaurs. Once the dinosaurs disappeared, a few small mammals lived on; larger ones flourished, too. Soon, they were all shapes and sizes. The smallest, the Tinimomys, could sit on the tip of your nose; the largest, the hornless rhino, was the size of four elephants combined. Some of today’s mammals look like their predecessors but on a much smaller scale. Imagine running into an armadillo the size of a small car! This exciting book informs readers about horns, armor, pouches, and thicker coats as a result of the Ice Age. With the Ice Age came a very special species of mammal—Homo sapiens (more commonly known as humans). With its colorful illustrations throughout and detailed information, this fun book about historic mammals will be a welcome addition to any elementary classroom. Reviewer: Bonita Herold; Ages 5 to 8.
