Mammoths on the Move

Author: Lisa Wheeler

First line: Fourteen thousand years ago the north was mostly ice and snow.

Why you should read this book: In rollicking rhyme, we learn about the annual migration of the woolly mammoth as it moved through the frozen landscape in search of vegetation. Based on recent scientific evidence and some speculation, the story portrays the huge creatures in family groups, protecting their young, tromping through snow. A great book for curious-minded kids.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You know the earth is 6000 years old, period.
