Read an Excerpt

Dear Reader, 

The animal world is full of all different kinds of babies, parents, and families. 

In this book I have presented a few of them!

Some babies live with their families for a long time; others have to grow up very fast. 

Like us, all animals want their babies to have the opportunity to grow up healthy and strong. 

I hope that you will enjoy the book, learn something new, and be reminded of the amazing diversity of the animal world.
