very informative! I didn't know about butt pouches. Gross From Inara's mom: I love this series! Inara and I learn about animals together. @READ KINDLE ô About Marsupials: A Guide for Children (About...) õ 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, Easytounderstand 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 Marsupialsfrom The Wellknown 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 I seriously think the Easter Bunny should be replaced with the Easter Bilby after reading this book. Way cuter. And endangered besides.

Marsupials are interesting. I hadn't realized there were so many varieties. Once again I found myself learning a lot as I read this book. I'm so glad I grabbed hold of this series to read and didn't just hand them to the kids without taking the time to look them over. This was a lot of fun. :) Children love studying Oceania because they are fascinated by marsupials! This was our goto book for a couple weeks of marsupial studies. It presents interesting facts in a clear fashion, with engaging and supportive illustrations. Although I usually prefer real pictures for scientific studies, the illustrations actually seemed to aide comprehension with striking clarity and beauty. My children will never forget the illustration of a Wombat and its baby in its pouch!
mmals Lovely illustrations with very few words on each page. The final pages have several sentences about each animal. Without reading that, you really don't learn anything. The final pages though make for denser reading for the littles.

This book would be good for a younger sibling to look at pictures, but not really worthwhile for learning about marsupials. This nonfiction book with simple text and beautiful illustrations identifies the most basic characteristics which make an animal a marsupial. This would be especially useful with younger learners or English learners. About Marsupials is not just a book to entertain a child it will awaken their minds and educate them about marsupials. It will definitely be entertaining, there are so many unusual looking animals. Most of the marsupials are found in Australia. We are familiar with the Kangaroo and the Koala Some marsupials may have upward facing pouches and others have pouches that face their back legs in order to safely carry their babies as they grow. Redneck Wallaby babies stay in the pouch popping in and out for as long as eight months.

One marsupial is very common her in the southern part of the United States and that is the Virginia Opossum. In fact have to bring in the cat food every evening because there is a family of opossums that eat right along with my cats. But they have to beware of my dogs. My dogs scare the opossum so bad the opposum falls over playing possum, that means they pretend they are dead, which really confuses their attackers.

I find it sad to say that some marsupials are extinct and some on the endangered species. Their habitats being destroyed by humanity.

The author provides information about the characteristics of the marsupials and their habitats. She also gives facts on what they eat and whether they hunt food during the day, night, or maybe even both. The author and illustrator put this series together in a way that young children and even adults will enjoy and learn, looking at creatures in a whole new way. The illustrators paintings are so life like I thought they were photo images.

I highly recommend all of the books in the About ... series.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Peachtree Publishers for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my honest opinion.

If you found this review helpful vote yes or no here. Using a simple one sentence per page format with realistic, colorful plate based illustrations and captions, the author introduces children to the world of marsupials. The author conveys what makes marsupials a unique species of animals, shares their traits and habitats while sharing through pictures all the different animals that make up the marsupial species. At the back of the book more information about each marsupial is depicted in the book. This book is part of the About .. and About Habitats series and would make wonderful additions to any library serving toddlers through grade 1 students.
