A Mammal Is an Animal by Lizzy Rockwell - ADVISABLE

Rockwell, Lizzy A Mammal Is an Animal. PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION. Holiday House, 2018. $18. 9780823436705

As the title says, a mammal is an animal, but not all animals are mammals. Thus begins a simple exploration into what actually constitutes a mammal and how they differ from other animals like insects, fish, birds and so on. The end of the book includes some great charts and facts about mammals, including details about a few mammals that do not fit the norm.

This is a great nonfiction picture book that clearly explains animal classifications in a simple way that kids will enjoy. The illustrations are nothing fancy, but they are nice and really bring the information to life. I can see this being a great choice for elementary science units and even general reading for interested young readers.
