Curious About Mammals

Peachtree. (Discovering Nature). Aug. 2020. 22p. Board $6.99. ISBN 9781682631980.
PreS-K–In this nonfiction board book, readers learn the basic characteristics of mammals through simple sentences and watercolor illustrations. Each spread describes two mammal species with facts that initially highlight commonalities among all mammals and later contrast their diversity. For instance, “All mammals have hair” and “Some mammals run. Some mammals climb.” A variety of animals from different environments are presented: whales, dolphins, elks, arctic foxes, and rodents. The common name for each animal is provided in small font below the illustration. Some of the illustrations were previously published in the hardcover edition of About Mammals or earlier titles such as About Marsupials or About Rodents.
VERDICT An optional purchase where animal board books or nonfiction topics are popular.
