Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Baby animal names from the barnyard to the plains of Africa and everywhere in between are explored through verse coupled with periodic questions for the young reader. Lifelike watercolor depictions of the various young in their natural habitats will encourage further discussion and exploration by parent or teacher and child.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3A picture book that features the specific names for a variety of animals and their babies. Soft watercolors, accompanied by short rhyming verses, flow across two-page spreads. Eels and seals swim the blue seas with their elvers and beach weaners. Giraffes and their calves keep an eye on a lazy lion and his cubs under a hazy orange sky. The pleasant illustrations are offset by the bland verse: "Fluffy, scruffy swan/please do not forget,/you're not an `ugly duckling.'/You're a beautiful cygnet!" Overall, the greatest value here lies in the alphabetical listing of 100 adult animals and the corresponding names for their offspring that appears at the end of the book.Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Ryan (The Flag We Love, 1996, etc.) goes from barnyard and backyard to ocean and outback to reveal in rhymed couplets the names of baby animals.

Each spread describes three animal young of a particular habitat, posing a fourth infant as a question: "I am a baby mackerel./Tell me, what's my name?" In the turn of the page comes the answer: "Tiny, shiny mackerel/you're just a little tyke,/and until you grow much bigger/you are called a spike!" Familiar and informative names are included; readers will recognize baby frogs as polliwogs and baby owls as owlets but may not know that baby seals are beach weaners and baby jellyfish are ephyras. From deGroat come serene seascapes and lush ponds, sun-drenched savannas and nocturnal woodlands, all rendered in subdued watercolors; cuddly creatures populate tranquil scenes of the natural world surrounding these newborns. An alphabetical listing of the babies' names provides the perfect ending.
