[STARRED REVIEW]
This charming picture book presents more than 20 baby animals and their parents. Each spread begins with a simple statement, such as “The baby needs to move,” “The baby needs protection,” or “The baby is part of a family,” followed by another spread that indicates how different animals accomplish this task (for instance, “The baby is hungry” is paired with descriptions of grizzly cubs nursing and wolf pups consuming meat regurgitated by adult wolves). The simple and clear language will keep readers engaged and their interest piqued. Rendered in pencil and watercolor, the illustrations depict these animals so tenderly that readers may forget that these are wild creatures. Back matter includes a short paragraph about each animal and a compilation of excellent websites that feature some captivating photographs of mammals. This title will surely be popular in the library as a beginning research tool, but some may find it quite appropriate as bedtime reading, too.—Martha Rico, El Paso ISD, TX
