All around the world, animal parents transport their young in a variety of ways, some familiar and others surprising and fascinating. How did your parents carry you? In their mouth? Probably not! But that's how the African Cichlid fish carries its babies.

From kangaroos with joeys in their pouches in the Australian Outback to penguin chicks perched on their parents' feet in the frozen Antarctic, a range of animal families from around the world is shown in their natural habitats. Whether on their parents' backs or in their pouches, under their wings or on their feet, animal babies feel safe and sound as they are carried from place to place. The story ends on a reassuring note with a human baby snuggled in her mother's arms.

Parents and children will want to cuddle close together as they read this informative and soothing text and enjoy the bright, colorful pictures of acclaimed author-illustrator Susan Stockdale.
