Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–Accompanied by minimal text, Stockdale's colorful acrylic illustrations fill the pages, showing the many different ways in which animals carry their young. The artist uses slight gradations in color to show movement, such as in the greens of the jungle leaves or in the white and ivory for penguins on the ice and snow. As the book concludes, readers see a human mother hugging her child "safe and snug, the way your mother carried you," creating a comforting final image. The last spread contains the names of the animals portrayed and where they live. This title is so similar to Linda Ashman's Babies on the Go (Harcourt, 2003) that libraries may not need to own both of them.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. The facts of zoology are both exciting and cuddly in this science picture book with clear, bright acrylic illustrations that show how various animals carry their babies. The settings give the big picture--from the African savannah and Antarctica to South America. Then children can look closely and find animal babies tucked into pouches, clinging to bellies, propped on shoulders, perched on feet, gripped between teeth. The final picture shows a human baby safe and snug in its mother's arms ("the way your mother carried you."). A concluding double-page spread notes the name and habitat of each of the 14 animals shown in the pictures--from baboon and alligator to jacana and grebe. A bibliography will lead to more fun reading about animals. The focus on movement as well as the physical immediacy in words and pictures make this a good choice to introduce science to the very young. Hazel Rochman
