I Am Josephine: (And I Am a Living Thing) by Jan Thornhill

Into the Wild

Read I Am Josephine: (And I Am a Living Thing) Online Free - Meet Josephine: a spirited and curious girl, a big sister, and a human being. She’s also a mammal, an animal, and a living thing—all identities she explores with readers in this simple informational picture book.

Josephine presents her family (and herself) as examples of human beings, and then familiar creatures like her dog and her mom (and herself) as mammals. Next, she adds whales, lobsters, hummingbirds, and elephants (and herself) as examples of animals. Finally, she shares examples of living things, including moose, foxes, butterflies, flowers, and bugs… and, of course, herself!

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

Playful, kid-friendly illustrations in vibrant colors paired 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.

Don't let the bland cover deceive you -- this book is full of rich illustrations accompanying a STEM-filled story.

Such a fun way to introduce the concept of living things to young kiddos. This book will want to be read again after read aloud because there are so many opportunities for students to think and answer questions posed by the author.

A great introduction to classification for younger readers. I only wish there'd been even just a little bit of explanation as to why Josephine is each of those things.
