Synopsis

Why Do Mammals Have Fur? by Pat Jacobs, Julia Bird

An original new science series which explores the key characteristics that divide the main animal and plant groups, and looks at how these characteristics have evolved over time. The information is supported by examples that highlight the quirky and amazing qualities of the natural world, as well as revealing the dazzling variety within each group. Why Do Mammals Have Fur? looks at the defining features of mammals, such as being warm-blooded, having hair and feeding their young, and explores how mammals have evolved and adapted over time. Mammal life cycles, behaviour and habitats all also feature.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
