Overview

Kingfisher Readers L1: Baby Animals by Thea Feldman

Starting with familiar baby animals like puppies and kittens and working through a whole range of species, this book takes a close look at all aspects of the lives of animal babies such as relative size, the number of babies different animals have at once, hatching from eggs, feeding, safety, and more. In the end, readers learn their own place in the animal world—human babies are baby animals too. Throughout the book, new words are introduced—fawn, calf, chick—and a glossary at the end reinforces new words.

LEVEL 1 – BEGINNING TO READ (red)
The language at this level will be short and simple sentences, with straightforward vocabulary and punctuation, a high level of phonic regularity and lots of repetition. Includes simple glossary.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Emily Griffin
Photographs of baby animals star in this "Kingfisher Readers" Level 1 book for early readers. Each large, color photograph is accompanied by one or two sentences that explain a fact about baby animals. Starting with a basic overview "This dog has babies. A baby dog is a puppy." Many animals are called different names as babies, others are hatched from eggs. Often mothers take care of new babies, but some animals like spiders, snakes, or lizards are not nurtured by their parents. Some animals look like their adult counterparts, but animals like tadpoles look very different than a grown-up frog. Here, Orcas are called Killer Whales but the presentation of basic facts about baby animals flows in a logical way that will be accessible to new readers and makes this a worthy purchase. Words in bold are defined in a back glossary. A solid introduction to nonfiction. Reviewer: Emily Griffin
