Rober, Harold T Woolly Mammoth. 24 pgs. Lerner, 2017. $19.99. Content: G.
This book features information about the Woolly Mammoth for a young reader such as what it ate, why it was covered in fur, and how they are different from an elephant. Includes photographs, renderings, and illustrations.
This book is easy enough for a kindergarten or first grader to read on their own. It contains quite a bit of good information, but the harder words are defined in the back, rather than in text or via an information bubble, which is confusing for younger readers. The photographs and illustrations were just horrible! Some of them were sort of blurry and some poorly drawn. The only decent re-creation is used twice. The publisher should have paid for better images for the book. A teacher could use this for a read-aloud as well.
