Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Make way for the baby announcements with this fun-filled riddle book about baby animals. Simple, informative baby announcements perch on every right hand page. Readers and listeners are invited to guess which baby animal is being described before they turn the page to see the answer. The illustrations partly hidden behind the colorful announcements give clues as to the identity of the baby described. So do the names of the announcing parents. Simple animal facts are naturally included in the announcements. The facts offer the readers and listeners information, such as a baby owl weighs about two ounces, and a baby lion weighs about 250 pounds, or a baby seahorse is about one-half inch long. This type of information is offered without being didactic. Full-color, soft toned illustrations complement the text. A special section called "For Creative Minds" includes more facts and an animal numbers game. The book's last page presents a creative writing page that allows youngsters to write their own baby announcement. It is the perfect way to end this book. 2006, Sylvan Dell, Ages 4 to 8.
—Nancy Garhan Attebury
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Alternating pages show an oil painting of an animal family that is almost totally obscured by a birth announcement. These announcements offer clues as to the creatures' identities, such as the baby's weight and height and other attributes. On the flip side, the illustration is revealed in its entirety, along with another fact about the baby. The art is simple, but realistically rendered. The parts that peek out around the edges of the announcement include feet, tails, and the creature's native environment. The book concludes with additional facts about the featured subjects and an activity that helps children visualize their actual sizes. Interesting material presented in an unusual way.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    MY KIDS LOVE THIS BOOK!

    This is one of those books your young kids will love having read to them over and over again. Each page has animal facts in a "Birth announcement" format. Kids get to guess which creature has been described, and then they turn the page to find the answer beautifully illustrated.

    This is a wonderful choice for both animal lovers and riddle lovers. Because of the birth announcement theme, I personally have bought several copies to give away with baby shower gifts.
