Nabob and the Geranium

by Judith Ransom Miller
44 pages, Picture Book
Reviewed by Jenny

A simple introduction into the classification of species.


Nabob is a horse, a real horse, and even if you saw his picture in an unlikely place, such as a TV commercial or on the society page, you would know he is a horse. But how do you know? Horses are like other things, such as zebras and donkeys. There must be some way of telling when a horse is a horse and not a lobster, and Nabob is going to find out.

This darling little book with its charming illustrations takes a child step by step through the world of classification, simplifying and making interesting the different levels that all things are categorized under. Nabob takes the reader through the similarities in things all the way down to the geranium, his favorite flower. Enjoyable for all, this book is easy to read and understand and would be an excellent read for homeschooling children.
