Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Four Animal Babies titles feature close-up photos of the different offspring in the wild along with a couple of clues, then ask the question, "Who is my mommy?" Turning the page, readers get the photographic answer as well as a bit of information about the lives and habits of the creatures shown. One example in Animal Babies in Polar Lands shows a close-up with this clue "I have flippers instead of legs. They help me swim very quickly in cold water" a flip of the page reveals a seal. The other titles: Animal Babies in Rain Forests; Animal Babies in Grasslands; and Animal Babies in Ponds and Rivers. (May) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The "Animal Babies" series takes children on a journey through ponds and rivers, polar lands, and grasslands. In this edition, the reader is introduced to animal babies in grasslands. The book features amazing full-color photographs of a elephant, zebra, lion, prairie dog, kangaroo, giraffe and meerkat along with their young in their natural habitat. Each animal baby is introduced with a photograph and text providing a clue unique to this particular animal. The book then attempts to engage the reader by asking, "Who is my mommy?" The answer is provided on the next page, along with a photo of the baby with her mother and text providing an additional fun fact. However, while the pictures are excellent and the animal facts clearly researched well, this particular question can be confusing to a young child. An adult will understand that the format is necessary to teach the different names given to the young of different species, a kangaroo baby is a joey while a zebra baby is an foal, for example. But asking a young reader this question will likely be more puzzling than intriguing. 2004, Kingfisher Publications, Ages 2 to 5.

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Grassland animals from all over the world are presented in this recent title, a part of the "Animal Babies" series. Children will see the elephant, lion, prairie dog, kangaroo, giraffe, and zebra. The continent on which each lives is not identified. Since this book will be used primarily for animal identification, there is no need for that information. An up-close picture shows the baby animal's face. The next page shows its mother, tells what kind of animal she is, and what the baby is called. Toddlers and preschoolers are introduced to the animals in their natural habitats through the high quality photos, some of which are from National Geographic. All are engaging and interesting. This board book is a good vocabulary builder for babies, and the interactive component whereby toddlers and preschoolers can identify each animal makes this a very good purchase.
