Description

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of marsupials.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what marsupials are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a variety of marsupials--from the well-known koala and kangaroo to the less familiar cuscus and quoll. An afterword provides details on the animals featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
