Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-These delightful series additions engage children's curiosity by revealing the roles animal parents play in the lives of their offspring. The creatures mentioned include fish, penguins, and beavers (Daddy), and lizards, camels, and kangaroos (Mommy). With simple text ranging from two to nine lines per page, the books introduce a few fascinating facts: sea horse fathers give birth; mice are born blind, deaf, and hairless; a female spider carries as many as 200 eggs. Children will enjoy the bright, cartoon illustrations. Each of these compact books ends by explaining that human beings spend the most time being cared for by their parents. Behaviors that mothers and fathers teach children are mentioned in both titles.-Olga R. Kuharets, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
