by Cathryn Sill
illustrated by John Sill

Now in a bilingual edition! A first glimpse into the world of mammals from Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the celebrated About… and About Habitats series.

“Pre-school and primary-grade teachers will find this an attractive choice for units on mammals.” ―Booklist

In this English/Spanish bilingual edition of About Mammals, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what mammals are, what they eat, and where they live. Spanish translations sit just under English text for easy reading.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the huge variety of mammals, from the tiny White-footed Deermouse to the large American Bison. An afterword provides more details.

About Mammals / Sobre los mamíferos is part of the award-winning About… series—perfect for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary education classes in Spanish, science, and animal life.
