Kindergarten-Grade 3?An introductory survey that focuses on child care in the animal kingdom. Baillie looks at 12 species from around the world and outlines in a couple of brief paragraphs how the creatures prepare for, protect, and care for their young. The numerous, large pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are serviceable, if not inspired. While not a resource for reports, this title is acceptable for browsing.?Janet O'Brien, Mount Pleasant Public Library, Pleasantville, NY
