We loved learning about these mammals of Austrailia. Many of them were familiar but we learned interesting facts we didn’t know already. The pictures are great and inspired us to do more of our own research!

Our family enjoyed this book about different animals of Australia. While we knew of each of these animals, we still learned quite a bit in the informative and interesting book. The illustrations are true to the good and beautiful style and it includes a map of Australia to give us an idea where the animals are found. My animal and fact loving boys (ages 11 & 9) really enjoyed this book. Mammals included in this book include: Echidna, Kangaroo, Koala, Possum, Platypus, Tasmanian Devil, Wallaby, Wallaroo, Wombat, and even a bit about the North American Opossum. Did you know that the Opossum and the Possum are actually two different animals?
