Editorial Reviews

Hazel Rochman
The facts of zoology are both exciting and cuddly in this science picture book with clear, bright acrylic illustrations that show how various animals carry their babies.....The focus on movement as well as the physical immediacy in words and pictures make this a good choice to introduce science to the very young.
Booklist
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Accompanied by minimal text, Stockdale's colorful acrylic illustrations fill the pages, showing the many different ways in which animals carry their young. The artist uses slight gradations in color to show movement, such as in the greens of the jungle leaves or in the white and ivory for penguins on the ice and snow. As the book concludes, readers see a human mother hugging her child "safe and snug, the way your mother carried you," creating a comforting final image. The last spread contains the names of the animals portrayed and where they live. This title is so similar to Linda Ashman's Babies on the Go (Harcourt, 2003) that libraries may not need to own both of them.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A beautifully sweet look at how babies are carried, from insects and birds, to mammals and fish, and ultimately to how your own mother carried you. The first half of the text focuses on opposites, while the second portion highlights similarities. Giant anteaters carry their babies on their backs, while baboon babies cling to their moms' bellies. Coyotes, American alligators, and African Cichlids (a fish) all use their mouths to carry their young. While the pictures are not labeled, a two-page afterword shows a thumbnail of the illustration and lists the animals featured as well as where they live. A bibliography is also included. The illustrations are perfect for young readers. Featuring simple lines and vibrant colors, they complement the text by focusing on the interaction between the parent and child. Sure to become a calm and soothing bedtime favorite. (Nonfiction. 2-5)
