Overview

A specially-photographed celebration of animal families, sure to capture the imagination of any child.
In his new book for children, Steve Bloom has focused his camera on fourteen species of wild animal families: bears, cheetahs, chimpanzees, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, hippos, lions, orangutans, pandas, penguins, rhinos, seals, and zebras.
Each family is featured over four pages, and the broad array of subjects is guaranteed to entice and amuse young readers. The photographs explore every facet of family life, from feeding and grooming to playing and hunting.
Entertaining and lively texts by children’s author David Henry Wilson accompany the entries and explain anything and everything of interest: why hippo families like to wallow in mud, what noises baby giraffes make, and why you should always look at a zebra’s ears.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers for whom the grass is always greener can compare their lives to those of 14 animal families, including cheetahs, giraffes, gorillas, hippos, and seals. Though the book's boxy layout is uninspiring, Bloom's photographs are mesmerizing, featuring adult and baby animals feeding, sleeping, and on the move. Wilson packs a lot of animal facts into the text, as well as many reader-directed questions ("Would you like to hold onto your mother's hair while she swings through the trees?") and light jokes that, in tandem with the photos, will keep kids engaged. All ages. (Sept.)
