Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

"The book features amazing full-color photographs..."

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
The "Animal Babies" series takes children on a journey through ponds and rivers, polar lands, and grasslands. In this title the reader is introduced to animal babies in ponds and rivers. The book features amazing full-color photographs of a hippopotamus, duck, capybara, frog, otter, and swan, along with their young in their natural habitat. Each animal baby is introduced with a photograph, and text providing a clue that illustrates the uniqueness of 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, 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 swan baby is a cygnet while a duck baby is a duckling, for example. But asking a young reader this question will likely be more puzzling than intriguing.
