ABOUT MAMMALS is a thoughtful first glimpse into the world of nature for young children. In this easy to read, informative follow-up for the critically acclaimed book, ABOUT BIRDS, author Cathryn Sill explains what mammals are, how they live, and what they do. From the unique pattern of hair on a raccoon to the special use of the muskrat's flattened tail, the Sills bring the fantastic world of nature that much closer to children.

With the help of beautifully detailed illustrations from noted wildlife illustrator, John Sill, ABOUT MAMMALS explains the basic characteristics that all mammals share, while offering a look into the huge variety of animals that fall into this diverse category. An afterword provides further detail on the animals portrayed to inspire young readers to learn more.
