I am Josephine - and I am a Living Thing

I am Josephine - and I am a Living Thing

Meet Josephine: she’s a little girl, a big sister and a human being. She’s also a mammal, an animal and a living thing. All the identities she explores in this simple but informative picture book provide a fabulous introduction to classification.

Inspired by science and nature writer Jan Thornhill’s many school visits, this book is intended to help children recognise themselves as part of the natural world, with an emphasis on how all living things share similarities.

Beautiful illustrations in vibrant colors combined with minimal text make this an easy introduction to the classification of living things. Endmatter goes into further detail about the unique characteristics of humans, mammals, animals and living things.

Reviews

Children are expected to learn about classification as part of their science learning. It can seem a complex topic, but I love the approach this book takes, which is friendly yet informative, and perfectly pitched to capture children's interest... this book is intended to help children recognise themselves as part of the natural world, with an emphasis on how all living things share similarities.
