Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Here are more than one hundred eye-catching animal babies in full-color and trivia-fact glory. Subjects are arranged alphabetically, making it easy for readers to quickly discern whether the book includes their favorites—elephant calves, seal pups, spiderlings, tortoise hatchlings, or something else. Featured animals range from the common (e.g., mourning dove squabs, dog puppies) to the less familiar (e.g., hornbills chicks, rhea chicks, shrew babies). Each full-color page includes three elements: (1) a numbered fact about the featured animal baby that includes its name, (2) a close-up image of the young animal, and (3) Information about the animal's development and its parents' behavior. For example, "#2 Anteater pups travel on their mothers' backs" is accompanied by information about how many pups are typically born at a time, how the mother cares for it during its infancy, how it is camouflaged by the mother, and how it behaves when it becomes independent. This is a terrific selection for the classroom or the home, sure to engage the interest and imagination of any animal-loving reader. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
