As we near the holiday season, you may find yourself wanting to purchase a gift for a child, grandchild, or other youngster to encourage a budding collector or just plant a seed that might blossom in the future. One possibility is the book, Wild About Mammals, by Cody Lee. Her lifelong interest in animals took a new turn when she inherited a large international stamp collection. The book, completely illustrated with stamps, provides basic information about more than 160 mammals. For collectors, the appendix gives the Scott Catalogue numbers for each stamp in the book. The book was published as a print-on-demand title and is available from AuthorHouse.
