Praise For…


"Fun and very educational."
Booklist

"[A] handsome examination of child-rearing across the animal kingdom."
Publishers Weekly

"Jenkins and Page's simple text effectively highlights the differing degrees of independence of a variety of species' young."
Horn Book

"Jenkins and Page find yet another inviting way to connect young human readers and listeners to creatures who share their world . . . Appealing to a wide age range, this is another crowd pleaser."
Kirkus

"The striking depictions of mother and child set against full-bleed colored backgrounds or clean white space should make for many return readings."
School Library Journal, starred review

"The style would work as an easy read as well as a readaloud."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Jenkins's masterly paper collages achieve their usual high standards of zoological accuracy and beauty. The text is shrewdly written in the first-person voice of each baby animal, mingling personality with scientific fact."
