Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

answers are simply written, but they don't shy away from scientific language, difficult issues, or remaining mysteries.

Children's Literature
Forty questions about baby animals prompt the information given in this book. Answers to the questions provide specific facts about all different kids of baby animals. Questions include: Which father 'gives birth' to his young? Which baby has lots of aunts? Which is the biggest baby? Which is the tallest? Well-known facts, such as kangaroos having pouches for carrying young are cited along with lesser known facts such as the maras who whistle for their children to come out of the burrow. Common animals such as gorillas, penguins, seahorses, kangaroos, leopards, and pandas are covered. But unusual animals that most children have not heard of such as the sandgrouse, froghopper, albatross, and plover are also introduced. There are drawings of each animal along with captions to give additional information about the picture and the animal drawn. Fantastic for answering children's dozens of questions about animals. Children will find this book interesting. 2003 (orig. 1996), Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 5 to 9.
