Book Review: Animal Mothers and Fathers

Animal Mothers and Fathers, by Mary Lindeen is an adorable and informative book that features animal parents and their babies. 

As a part of the Read and Discover Science series, this book encourages children to learn about scientific subjects while working on their reading skills. According to a note from the publisher: "The series can be used with beginning readers to practice high-frequency words, academic language, and to expand comprehension of life, earth, and physical science."

Throughout this book, there are interesting animal facts and Did You Know sidebars intermixed with brilliant and adorable full-color photographs. Also, there are Connecting Concepts and Word List sections.

Animal Mothers and Fathers is a delightful non-fiction book that's geared toward kindergartners to third graders. Highly recommend this enjoyable children's book.

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.
