Is a Camel a Mammal? All About Mammals

Author Tish Rabe
Illustrated by Jim Durk
Laugh and learn with fun facts about mammals, from the land to the sea, the smallest (pygmy shrew) to the largest (blue whale), and more—all told in Dr. Seuss’s beloved rhyming style and starring the Cat in the Hat!

“Yes, people are mammals—amazing but true! Oh, and cats in tall hats? Well...yes. We’re mammals, too!”

The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library series combines beloved characters, engaging rhymes, and Seussian illustrations to introduce children to non-fiction topics from the real world! Journey around the world and discover:
 
  • what makes an animal a mammal
  • what the world’s smallest and largest mammals are
  • how different mammals take care of their babies
  • and much more!
