A noteworthy review of The World of Mammals from Children's Bookwatch on July 1, 2008
Recommended for young readers in grades 3-8, The World of Mammals series is a set of educational children’s books by author Sophie Lockwood offering a fascinating introduction to various mammalian species that share our planet, complete with full-color photography, maps, a glossary, sources for further research, and an index. This is a wonderful way for young people to discover more about these animals, many of which are threatened or endangered by humans, and a welcome addition to public library children’s collections.
