This acclaimed beginner’s guide offers a first glimpse into the natural world of rodents—everything from porcupines and deer mice to squirrels, hamsters, and more. Former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what rodents are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.

Noted wildlife illustrator John Sill offers beautifully detailed, realistic paintings to depict a variety of rodents, from the tiny Eurasian Harvest Mouse to the hefty Capybara of South America. An afterword provides more details.

About Rodents is part of the award-winning About… series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
