Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The otter pup has the warmest fur coat in the world. Her fur is so fluffy and thick that it keeps her from sinking underwater. So when Mum goes diving for food, the pup floats on top of the water like a cork." — from the book
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Each book follows an animal from just after birth through to adulthood-for the sea otter, this is one year, and for the orangutan, five years. In color photos, readers see each baby growing, sleeping, eating, and interacting with its mother, though at times, it's difficult to identify specific body parts, and many of the photographs are very similar. The conversational texts include facts, an overview of the maturation process, and some slight fictionalization ("Being with Mom is great…."). While geographic areas in which each animal lives are mentioned, no maps are included. A bulleted list on each back page gives quick facts and a web address for further information. Though not standouts, these titles will likely be popular, thanks to the adorable photos that appear throughout.—Amanda Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, Madison, WI
