Woolly Mammoth by Windsor ChorltonA book that explains the life and habitat of the woolly mammoths, their death and how they have been rediscovered in recent times.
I usually enjoy reading about extinct animals, but this book was just so dense and wordy that it was hard to get through. I was distracted easily by other things. I think one of the best things that could have been done for this book is to move the material over a couple more pages. The information was helpful and good, once you got through it. I would give this to a third, fourth or fifth grade its great reference book and would be great for the classroom.
