Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 
 

"In addition to images of big eyes and long snouts, which are always a crowd-pleaser, the text helps define vocabulary words through interesting typography...Both educational and kissable, this may well prompt a visit to the zoo."

-Booklist

 

"[The] typography reflects the activities described; the word 'climbing' literally reaches up. Bold backgrounds suit this presentation...Toddlers will be hard-pressed to find more adorable animal tykes anywhere."

-Kirkus Review

Kirkus Reviews
Cute and cuddly babies are the star attractions at the zoo. Clear, dynamic photographs showcase each animal tot; their faces dominate the right page, while the left contains text and a smaller, usually adorable full-figure pose. The animals included extend beyond the ordinary choices (golden lion tamarin, red panda). The fairly generic descriptions, conveyed in the animals' voices, include some basic facts selected for child appeal: The red panda uses its tail as a "snuggly" blanket, and the aardvark "snuffl[es]" up ants with its snout, for instance. Occasionally there is a disconnect between photo and text. Two baby cougar cubs are particularly precious as they stare off the page, while the accompanying statement focuses on physicality: "Jumping, climbing, running and swimming--I'm always busy. Catch me if you can!" Typography reflects the activities described; the word "climbing" literally reaches up. Bold backgrounds suit this presentation. Baby Animals: In the Sea shares the same design, focusing on both undersea critters and shoreline animals. Not a good choice for depth, but toddlers will be hard-pressed to find more adorable animal tykes anywhere. (Board book. 1-2)
