School Library Journal Starred Review
Toddler-PreS Sweet photographs of baby animals and information about them and their development are compared to and contrasted with human infants. The various topics begin with the same refrain: "Each new day, in different ways, a baby like you" and continue with information on how an animal and a human are born, carried, eat, bathe, play, learn, and begin to walk. Major milestones are covered and photographed in endearing full-color close-ups and feature children of different races. The animals mentioned include hippos, lions, penguins, elephants, orangutans, and otters. Two fox kits play together, a zebra foal takes its first steps, and a polar bear cub grabs hold of its feet and rolls in the snow. Humans and animals have much in common in their early developmental stages and children will be interested in finding out just how similar they are to certain animals while learning about the important differences. VERDICT Babies love babies. Babies love animals. Babies love learning about the world. This irresistible book has it all. Maryann H. Owen, Oak Creek Public Library WI
