Born in the Wild: Baby Animals and Their Parents

borninthewildBy Lita Judge

With sweet illustrations that will appeal to the young and any animal lover, Born in the Wild immediately inspired “Awwws” and “So cute” from all the children. Explaining what animal parents do to teach their young how to grow, live and survive, readers learn “the traits that all baby mammals share and proves that, even though they‘re born in the wild, they’re not so very different from us, after all.” (front jacket) The illustrations are drawn so beautifully and I like the way each subject has its own introductory page and starts with “The baby needs….” I also like that each animal’s name is highlighted in a different color from the black text and used complimentary colors from the illustrations. The back gives more information about each animal as well as a glossary, bibliographical references, and websites.
