Description

This beginner's guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of rodents.
In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what rodents 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 rodents, from the tiny Eurasian Harvest Mouse to the hefty Capybara of South America. An afterword provides details on the animals featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
