Baby animals come in many different shapes and sizes, and many of those shapes and sizes are covered in spots or stripes.
In Baby Animals Spots & Stripes, each turn of the page reveals a pair of adorable baby animals—one spotted and one striped. On the back cover of the book is a list of the animals featured (mammals, reptiles, birds, and fish). The book closes with a full-color illustration of babies playing with toy versions of each animal.
This title is a companion to the best-selling Baby Animals Black and White. The bold black-and-white patterns stimulate eyesight and brain development in infants. The recognition and naming of familiar animals promotes speech development in older babies and infants.
