I've been reading since I was 3, and I haven't seen any reason to stop. I'll read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, though I will admit to a crippling addiction to fantasy and YA books.

Discover Mammals - Fun Facts For Kids

Discover Mammals - Fun Facts For Kids - Rose Alden Discover Mammals is a short, educational introduction to mammals for kids.

This isn't a very in-depth look at mammals, but the book's targeted to younger children, so it works.

It covers the basics of what makes a mammal (hair, births live young, produces milk), goes over the difference between carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores, and gives a brief comparison between mammals and the other kingdoms. It even mentions the exception to the live young rule, in platypuses and echidnas.

...and my auto-correct is trying to change "echidnas" to "enchiladas". I'm pretty sure enchiladas aren't mammals.

Although I am pretty sure they're herbivores, since they're usually shown with vegetables nearby.
