Building on the success of Earth and Sky, Animal Babies is an interactive book about the birth and growth of animals that both entertains and teaches young readers. This book is full of tabs, flaps, and touch-and-feel elements that keep even the most fidgety readers focused and help them connect with the content. Touch an alligator’s skin and see the world the way a bull, chameleon, and bee do. Peek at what a bear cub noshes on by lifting flaps or pull a tab to help a mother giraffe have her baby. Filled with easily accessible text, this book works well as either a start-to-finish read or something children can dip into for bits of interesting information. The text is beautifully paired with Stéphanie Herrbach’s adorable, full-color illustrations and includes a pull-out poster (4'6" x 3') with life-size images of baby animals in the African Savanna. Animal Babies is an unbeatable introduction to topics children will explore further in elementary school science classes!

ANIMAL BABIES is one part science book and one part pop-up book, which makes it irresistible for any child. Even adults will find themselves flipping through the pages, learning a thing or two.

The author explores how some animals are born, how they communicate with sound and body language, how they clean themselves, how they play, and more. Kids will get to feel a snake's smooth scales and and elephant's hide. With the pop-up features, kids can make a dolphin leap from the water, and even make a squid squirt ink!

My favorite features are the life span tree (which compares a human's life span with that of other animals), and the life-size poster that comes with the book. Kids can hang the poster on their wall and compare their size with a baby giraffe, elephant, and more.

Also, the best feature? The book is a hardback binder, so it's sturdy enough to stand the test of time.

What a great reference for your budding zoologist!
