A Pinky Is a Baby Mouse: And Other Baby Animal Namesby Pam Munoz Ryan, Diane deGroat
Cuddly creatures populate tranquil scenes of the natural world surrounding these newborns. An alphabetical listing of the babies' names provides the perfect ending."Kirkus Review". Full color.
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.
