Overview

In this showstopper of a picture book—a follow-on to Fall's 2010 Animal Pop!—children get close to five adorable baby animals through realistic LIFE-SIZE pop-outs! A baby bunny, a sweet lamb, a wobbly pony, a family of piglets, and a line of baby ducks following their mother almost magically unfold with the turn of a page. Depicted in beautiful National Geographic photography, the babies are shown in their actual size, so children will understand how big (or how little) they really are. Special photos and captions highlight awesome animal features, and the gentle text is amusing and fun. Supplemental spreads include "The First Year of Life," which gives a glimpse of a baby animalÕs development. The beauty and novelty of the big, appealing pop-outs make this book a treasure that children will want to open again and again. Baby Animal Pop! is a charming and well-timed selection for spring holiday gifts.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
At twelve inches wide and ten inches high, this is a bulky book for a youngster to handle, but it has to be this big to accommodate the life-size pop-up photographs of the five baby animals that jump up and out from every other page. The first to pop up are three little bunnies in a field of grass followed by a page of quality information about young rabbits. Ducklings, piglets, lambs, and a baby pony, follow the bunnies. The information pages for each animal include what they eat, special physical features, and different species or breeds. Except for the small black figures created to show the difference in size between the infant and the adult of each animal, all of the pictures in the book are photographs. What is there to say about a life-size pop-up pony but Wow! Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—This well-written book has exquisite life-size photos. Between the appealing pictures, an educational text for older children details the environment, anatomy, food, and homes of bunnies, ducklings, piglets, lambs, and ponies. The diagrams and photos give youngsters insight into the first year of the animals' lives. There are also fun asides like the fact that President Woodrow Wilson grazed sheep on the White House lawn. The repeated use of the foldouts (which fold up and out larger than the book itself) could lead to quick wear and tear. This lovely book deserves consideration as long as the foldouts do not present a problem.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
Kirkus Reviews
Pop-up pages big enough to contain full-size photos of a standing lamb and even most of a gamboling pony foal give this farmyard gallery outsized visual appeal. The accompanying text is less eye-popping, though. Each of five spreads opens up into a wordless outdoor scene printed on heavy, coated stock and featuring either an individual or (for the rabbits and ducks) a family portrait. In between are spreads filled with smaller photos and bite-sized bits of factual information presented in several levels of detail and type size. That information ranges from the ingenuous "For piglets, life on the farm is like recess 24 hours a day!" to an inaccurate claim that ducks have no blood vessels in their feet. A gallery of famous sheep includes Dolly--with no explanation of what "cloned" actually means--and a "miracle" lamb supposedly born with "Allah" in Arabic script on its side. Furthermore, the tiny, faint type used for a recurrent "On the Menu" feature will promote eyestrain. Plenty of 3-D eye candy, but the informational content needs work. (Pop-up nonfiction. 3-8)

    Great pop-up book.

    I bought this book for my grandson and for a friend's grandson. The pop-ups of the animals are large, and the children seem to enjoy them. I would buy it again.
