What is a Marine Mammal?

"From the front-cover photograph of beguiling faces of young elephant seals to the book's end (a photograph of the rear of a polar bear) on the back cover, seldom mentioned facts on marine mammals will fascinate the viewer ...this extremely satisfying book will delight and inform both child and adult equally and repeatedly. The unusually effective presentation of all the books in the series would enhance the libraries of both newcomers to biology and those generally familiar with many of the animal groups." —Science Books & Film (SB&F), 07/00 “The Science of Living Things ... books present precise scientific information in clear, colorful illustrations, photography and graphic organizers. Labels and bold-faced typography further enhance the text. Noteworthy, too, are the boxed background pictorials and graphic charts ... This series provides a wealth of science information for students from grades 3 upward. Highly recommended for librarians and teachers who assist students with science projects.” —Catholic Library World, 07/98
