PreS-Gr 1—Kids will explore how some of their favorite animals grow and how they look in the first stages of life. Each book includes full-page photographs of baby animals, and the accompanying text directly corresponds to the activity depicted in each image. Also included is how animal young are fed and taken care of by their parents and how they survive in their natural habitats. Text in bold helps very young readers identify each animal's unique characteristics and grow their vocabulary and will encourage dialogic reading between readers and caregivers. Each entry includes a short photographic summary of animals at different growth stages, accompanied by text, as well as a glossary to encourage reading comprehension and retention.
VERDICT An endearing and essential introduction to baby animals for curious young readers.
