Babies, whether in snowy dens, warm lagoons, cozy nests, or living rooms, are nurtured and nuzzled, carried and cuddled. This lyrical book explores the many aspects of childcare in the animal kingdom. Stunning paintings celebrate tender moments between mother and child. In the back of the book, discussion guides, animal vocabulary, and information about a child’s first food encourage children to learn more about these 18 animals. The book introduces early science concepts, such as habitats, by asking kids to compare their neighborhood to the jungle, ocean, or arctic. An extensive Teacher’s Guide, available for free download in English and Spanish, enhances the book’s content, increasing learning opportunities.
