The focal point of each book is the featured animal's early stages of life, but a concluding spread shows the complete life cycle. Most of the discussion is about how they hatch from eggs and the first days of their life. Survival techniques of the newborns are touched upon. These easy-to-read titles have little detail or depth, but they will spark children's curiosity, and the colorful photos add appeal. Pronunciation guides appear in an opening spread, "Word Hunt," and are duplicated at the end in a "Your New Words" glossary.
