Another wonderful Pallotta alphabet book that allows the reader to search many different kind of mammals thus specializing the group to those that are furry.

Like his other books, the author uses short sentenced paragraphs that are sometimes fun and sometimes edu

This book is an alphabet book about mammals with fur. Most of the animals are exotic animals and are a certain breed of an animal. It is not really set up as a story book but does has pictures of all the animals it talks about. It lists the animals and gives some type of information about it.

A fun alphabet book that introduces less familiar animals like the Aye-Aye, Ermine, and Springbok.

A funny, interesting alphabet book with beautiful artwork. Even grown-ups can enjoy this picture book, and the text is intelligent and not too short - clearly designed for reading aloud.
