Book Review: Baby Animals


Animal Planet: Baby Animals, by Dorothea Deprisco is an adorable and informative book that features more than 200 photos of baby animals and their families. Some of the baby animals featured are spotted owlet, red panda, angora rabbit, northern raccoon, and sea otter.
 
As a part of the Animal Bites series, the book summary indicates that this book "provides kids in the first years of schooling with the perfect bite-sized view of their favorite animals. Arranged thematically with a focus on animal behavior and family relationships, young readers will explore sections about life cycles, feeding, play time, conservation, getting around, and much more."
 
At the beginning of the book, How to Use This Book explains what each of the colorful tabs represent. These tabs include the following: How They Grow, Where They Live, African Elephant, How They Live, Vista, Big Data, Animal Gallery, Living/Working, and Just Like Me. Also, there are Info Bites sidebars with facts about baby animals.

While featuring brilliant full-color photographs intermixed with animal facts, Baby Animals is a delightful eighty page non-fiction book, and it's geared toward children, particularly preschoolers to third graders.

 
Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
