Published in association with the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Cubs, kittens, calves, and more warm the pages of this elegant and entertaining springtime gift book.
In twenty works of art from the renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, young animals take center stage. From a Leonardo da Vinci drawing to an eighteenth-century Japanese netsuke, and from a Rosa Bonheur painting to a John James Audubon lithograph, baby animals of all kinds make their way in the world. Puppies play, tiger cubs nestle, goat kids gambol, an owlet stretches its wings, kittens follow their mother, an elephant calf nurses, and more, all alongside an irresistible rhyme that is great for storytime and to read aloud before bed.
A delightful book to share, Baby Animals is a great gift for baby showers, baby birthdays, and also Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and holidays year-round.
