Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3—This offering is big on pictures but small on content. It maintains all of the visual appeal of DK's popular "Eyewitness" and "Watch Me Grow" series, but the information is simply worked around pages of color photographs. A different animal is introduced on each of the 29 spreads. How parents care for offspring, whether as a team or separately; what the baby eats; and how long it requires adult care are mentioned. Sidebars and speech bubbles provide further information, some of which is not relevant to the topic. While the title suggests that this might be a concept book, the animals are introduced randomly, with no attempt to arrange them by geography, climate, or, indeed, size. This is a book that youngsters might enjoy browsing through, but it provides little more than a scattershot look at a popular topic.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
