Publisher Summary
An award-winning first glimpse into the diverse natural world of mammals. From Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the About... and About Habitats series.

"Pre-school and primary-grade teachers will find this an attractive choice for units on mammals." ―Booklist

In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what mammals are, what they eat, and where they live.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the huge variety of mammals, from the tiny White-footed Deermouse to the large American Bison. An afterword provides more details.

About Mammals is part of the award-winning About... series, ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary studies in science, animal life, and nature.
