Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Using a variety of examples from the animal world (and including the human animal), Fraser presents the ways adults protect their young. For instance, baby alligators ride in their mother's mouth, others ride on back, in a pouch, or are carried by the scruff of their necks. The book also mentions ways parents signal warnings, attack or trick predators, use camouflage, or rely on the community for protection. Realistic and full-color pictures are clear, action is clean, and vocabulary used is appropriate to the age group without intrusive italics or boldface of words such as camouflage or instinct to mar the page design. Five more facts at the end tell a bit more about an animal's safety features, such as house design of a beaver with a follow-up question—"What do you live in, and how does it keep you safe?" as a way of starting discussion, a useful feature for parents and teachers. There is also a page of procedures to follow if you find a baby animal. A real plus are the designer endpapers which feature a forest of wild animals and invite endless pointing and naming. All and all, a great addition to the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out" series, Level 1. 2002, HarperCollins,

School Library Journal
PreS-K-The briefest descriptions of how a variety of baby animals survive various dangers and predators introduce the concepts of supervision, camouflage, feeding, cleaning, and homes. Though offspring requiring no adult protection are briefly mentioned, the book focuses on how parents struggle to protect and defend their young. There is no depth to any of the information, making the book of interest only to young children with a low attention span and no knowledge of the subject. The watercolors aptly illustrate a text that emphasizes how defenseless the little ones are.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series offers a broad look at the way young animals are protected by their parents and by their own instincts. Fraser (One Giant Leap, 1999, etc.) organizes her text by types of care, safe homes, moving young from place to place, alerting to danger, fighting for defense, and clustering in large groups for protection, with the beginning and ending of the work focusing on the care of human babies and children. She includes many types of animals, from the tiny (snails) to the huge (elephants) and the charming (cats and kittens) to the not-so-charming (a head-on view of an alligator with her babies in her open mouth). Fraser's illustrations in soft shades are rather sweet and old-fashioned, but many of her creatures are appealing, such as a mother monkey swinging through the jungle with her baby on her back or two baby raccoons peeking out of their tree-house home while their mother lures a bobcat away from her young. A large type-size and plenty of white space make this accessible to young readers who are reading at the fluency level. No new ground is broken here, but baby animals do have an eternal appeal to the young of the species that can read. (author's note) (Nonfiction. 5-7)
