Building on the success of Earth and Sky, Animal Babies is an interactive book about the birth and growth of animals that both entertains and teaches young readers. This book is full of tabs, flaps, and touch-and-feel elements that keep even the most fidgety readers focused and help them connect with the content. Touch an alligator’s skin and see the world the way a bull, chameleon, and bee do. Peek at what a bear cub noshes on by lifting flaps or pull a tab to help a mother giraffe have her baby. Filled with easily accessible text, this book works well as either a start-to-finish read or something children can dip into for bits of interesting information. The text is beautifully paired with Stéphanie Herrbach’s adorable, full-color illustrations and includes a pull-out poster (4'6" x 3') with life-size images of baby animals in the African Savanna. Animal Babies is an unbeatable introduction to topics children will explore further in elementary school science classes!
