Explorer: Mammals! By Nick Forshaw - ADVISABLE

Explorer: Mammals! By Nick Forshaw and William Exley. PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION. What on Earth Books, 2019. $15. 9780995577077



In the format of a classified file, this book walks through files of information on mammals. A museum librarian is tasked with finding the most important information and presents all that she has found. There are graphics and illustrations, and longer sections of text.

The chunked-up nature of this books makes it easy for kids to read, while still exposing them to a lot of text and information. The 8-page timeline in back is also an engaging source for information. I think this book will appeal to someone with an interest already there, but will do little to generate new interest.
