Overview

The animal kingdom offers a special fascination for children because so many of the cozy rituals they share at home are echoed in nature. All mammal mothers feed, protect, and teach their young—tasks that often challenge their own needs for survival. With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction—now in Spanish—reveals how fourteen mammals’ babies travel the path from helpless infant to self-sufficient adults.Por todo el mundo, en todo tipo de hábitats, las madres traen nueva vida. Para muchos animales, tales como los reptiles y anfibios, las responsabilidades de maternidad terminan aun antes de que los bebés nazcan. Pero las crías de los mamíferos necesitan a sus madres—necesitan ser amamantadas y nutridas por suficiente tiempo para aprender a sobrevivir por su cuenta. Todas las madres de mamíferos alimentan, protegen y educan a sus crías, aunque estas tareas a menudo desafían sus propias necesidades de supervivencia. Pero el camino de un bebé mamífero a la madurez varía enormemente según se trate de un oso o un murciélago, una musaraña o una foca, un hipopótamo o un humano. Esta introducción fascinante al mundo de los mamíferos revela cómo catorce mamíferos bebés recorren el camino de niños indefensos a adultos autosuficientes.
Si mi mamá fuese un ornitorrinco is also available in English as If My Mom were a Platypus. The book also comes in Dutch and Hebrew editions.
