This has become one of our favorite reads. My boys still find it fascinating. My youngest likes the pygmy shrew and my oldest stares at the spoon with the 18 opossum babies. This book is an excellent way to interest young readers in the natural world and animals, though my experience has shown this to never be a difficult task to begin with. Kids love animals and this book as well, for highlighting some of the unique characteristics of mammals.

This book is good for teaching rhyming, mammals, omnivores, carnivores, and herbivores. I liked how they mentioned animals that most kids may not be familiar with such as anteater, wallabies, armadillo, bobcat and sea lion. While most books may talk about cats an dogs, this gives them exposure to many different animals. Direct and simple explanation of what mammals, omnivores, carnivores, and herbivores are. And finally, the book is written in rhymes!

Is A Camel A Mammal, is a fun book for kids about The Cat in the Hat taking two kids named Dick and Sally on an safari adventure where they see and observe the many different kinds of mammals. A good way to teach literacy with this book is discuss the different animals that are mammals and have students write in their journals common factors that describe mammals. Students can share what they have come up with then they can compare the difference between mammals and non-mammals.

I am definitely not a fan of Dr. Seuss-style books written by other authors. I think I'll stick to the originals. Also, all three of my kids were bored as I read this one (very unusual for my book-loving children)...it's very long without much to keep you interested. Just added one more star for the pygmy shrew and the baby opossums - those did capture our attention - briefly.

Amazing! This book contains a TON of great animal info presented in a silly, rhythmical, rhyming way. This is the kind of book that a pre-reader can just look at for hours and a reader can enjoy and learn from again and again!

My kiddo loved this book. The rhymes (as usual with Dr. Seuss) were very catchy, and I loved how the story talked about many different mammals, focused on the camel, and ended with humans as mammals too.

This was such a cute book about mammals. The flow is very rhythmic and consistent. I really loved all the animals and environments all in one story.

This is a great overview of mammals for young kids (4-7 years). Rabe covers the basic characteristics of mammals in a fun and informative way. The pictures are cute as well.

This is fun because it is informational about mammals but it has cartoon like illustrations which can make it more appealing to students.

Done in rhyme, this tells about what makes a mammal and goes through several types of mammals. It's a fun read. :)

This book is Is a Camel a Mammal? by Tish Rabe. This book can be used in Kindergarden to 2 grade classrooms. This book can be used to teach rhyming, mammals, omnivores, carnivores, and herbivores.

Love these cat in the hat learning library books. One obvious omission--they never discuss that mammals feed their babies milk.

They left out the most important part. Nothing of MAMMARY glands is mentioned in this book about MAMMALS. What's up with that?
