Learn everything you ever wanted to know about exotic, irresisible baby animals in this fascinating book filled with full-color photographs.
Renowned science writer Seymour Simon takes on parenthood! In lucid prose he describes how thirteen different wild animals raise their young. Stunning photographs help place each animal in its distinct habitat, from penguins in the Antarctic to kangaroos in the outback. But whether it is an enormous polar bear fiercely protecting her cubs, or a sleek alligator swimming away right after her babies hatch, Seymour Simon shows us what is unique and important about each animal.
Young children always enjoy looking at pictures of baby animals so these photographs by Seymour Simon are sure to fascinate them. He has focused on less familiar species including a lynx kitten, a newborn alligator and an emperor penguin chick. Although the text is written for young readers, older children will also find it interesting.
