K-Gr 2—Everyone loves baby animals—but while they look adorable, their families have to work to keep them happy, healthy, and alive. From humpback whales in the ocean to polar bears in the Arctic, babies from all over the world are cared for by their parents in this fun book about young creatures and their families. Eszterhas provides gorgeous photographs to accompany short snippets of information about the ways various animals take care of their young. As an informational text, it provides a good introduction to animal life for younger elementary readers. For readers who are also animal lovers, it provides vivid, clear, and up-close photos of a range of wildlife and their offspring. Eszterhas also provides a spread with additional photos and insight to her own life as a wildlife conservationist and photographer.
VERDICT Recommended for most elementary nonfiction collections where additional animal stories are in demand.
