Learning becomes fun with this book detailing the different names given to certain animals and their young. Amazing artwork and interesting backmatter with more information on these animals will have readers gaining a deep appreciation for the world around us.

"If you were an animal-wild or tame, would you know your daddy's name?" Every page answers this question with a different animal. Meet a joey riding piggy-back whose daddy is a sugar glider, a calf whose daddy is a towering giraffe, and a tiny fry floating next to its seahorse daddy.

Children will be delightfully surprised by the animal in the middle of the book, and dads will especially appreciate the scene on the last page. Rhyming verses describe animal characteristics, and watercolor illustrations capture the feeling of all the different habitats, making every page a teachable moment. Additional animal information and matching game in the back of the book extends the learning.

  • Explore More for Kids: photos and further information about the animals in the book
  • Explore More for Teachers & Parents: further information about animal dads, tips for reading aloud, science, and math activities
