Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"These unforgettable images remind us that every animal’s story begins even before it enters the world. From our beloved dogs to exotic creatures, this book reveals how biology and behavior begin to intertwine from the very first moments of life." –Melissa Jo Peltier, co-author of Cesar’s Way and executive producer of The Dog Whisperer

". . . a book of breathtaking beauty and awesome drama. Brisk text and vivid images of embryos remind us of our shared ancestry with other animals, from dogs to dolphins, penguins to kangaroos.
The astonishing transition to birth reminds us that all of us are capable of wondrous transformations. Thank you, Michael Sims,
for this glorious tribute to the artistry of the womb."–Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig and Journey of the Pink Dolphins

"How can an air-breathing dolphin be born underwater? Why does a jellybean-sized kangaroo fetus decide to crawl out of the womb? Reading how species develop their diverse abilities while still in the womb is not just exhilarating; it is humbling to be reminded of the astounding diversity of life."–Bruce Fogle, author of New Dog and The New Encyclopedia of the Dog

"I cannot suggest a better present to a dog lover (or dolphin fanatic or elephant aficionado) than this beautiful book. Not only will you be enchanted by the images, the text too is quite wonderful, telling you lots of fascinating things I bet you didn’t
(I didn’t) know."–Jeffrey Masson, author of When Elephants Weep and Do Dogs Never Lie about Love

"In the Womb: Animals offers a new window into animals’
amazing beginnings, through incredible images and thought-provoking text and true to National Geographic’s marvelous interpretation of life on our planet." –Joan Embery, president of the Embery Institute for Wildlife Conservation and conservation ambassador for the Zoological
Society of San Diego
