Cathryn and John Sill explore slimy snails, clams, and more in their award-winning beginner’s guide to mollusks, part of the About… series.
“Handsome… a rewarding slice of the biodiversity pie.” ―School Library Journal
In this addition to the acclaimed About… series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what mollusks are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.
With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to a variety of mollusks—from the small Garden Snail to the Giant Pacific Octopus. An afterword provides more details.
About Mollusks is part of the award-winning About… series. Ideal for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary science units on animals.
