Twelve sets of baby animals romp through their wintry environs in this cheery board book. Anderson’s captionlike sentences introduce the animals by name, as well as the terms for their young: “Reindeer fawns leap” over a fallen log in a forest lit with golden sunlight that seems to herald spring’s arrival. Elsewhere, “Husky puppies race in the snow,” seal pups snuggle under a purple night sky, and “baby panda cubs snooze” amid snow-dusted bamboo shoots. Anderson’s eminently cuddly cartoons give the book a coziness that belies its chilly settings. Up to age 3. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
"Twelve sets of baby animals romp hrough their wintry environs in this cheery board book . . . Anderson's eminently cuddly cartoons give the book a coziness that belies its chilly settings." —Publishers Weekly “The concept here is simple. It's the illustrations that make this one shine. The hues and shades of Anderson's palette convey a chilly atmosphere that is neither bleak nor sterile but alive with color and cheer. Blues, yellows, reds, greens and purples all find their ways into this wintry world. And the adorable animals all seem to be enjoying themselves tremendously, from the arctic bunnies bounding high into the sky, heads and ears thrown back with joy, to sleeping panda cubs piled into a happy heap. A simple and beautiful introduction to animals that make their homes in snowy climes.” —Kirkus Reviews

Anderson's square, sturdy board book features baby animals romping, playing and snoozing in the snow. Each page spread features a group of animals against a wintry landscape, while a single brief sentence identifies them and describes what they are up to. "Roly-poly polar bear cubs play. / Reindeer fawns leap. / Baby beaver kits build." Readers also meet arctic fox cubs, arctic hare bunnies, husky puppies, penguin chicks and snowy owl chicks. All these baby animals are busy enjoying the day, but when night falls, "Wolf cubs howl at the moon. / Baby harp seal pups snuggle. / And baby panda cubs snooze." The concept here is simple. It's the illustrations that make this one shine. The hues and shades of Anderson's palette convey a chilly atmosphere that is neither bleak nor sterile but alive with color and cheer. Blues, yellows, reds, greens and purples all find their ways into this wintry world. And the adorable animals all seem to be enjoying themselves tremendously, from the arctic bunnies bounding high into the sky, heads and ears thrown back with joy, to sleeping panda cubs piled into a happy heap. A simple and beautiful introduction to animals that make their homes in snowy climes. (Board book. 1-3)
