Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The responses by various animal offspring to the titular question in this volume is that each baby belongs to a loving mommy animal (e.g., "Whose baby am I?/ I am a panda baby"), and they inspire irresistible portraits. Butler's (Bashi, Elephant Baby) acrylic and colored pencil illustrations realistically capture nine achingly adorable animals. He infuses his renderings of the cotton puff-like owlet that opens the book, a sweetly gawky zebra calf and a polar bear cub with just the right amount of romanticism. Glints of lavender play in the animals' fur, the trace of a smile can be detected on a bill or mouth and the artist misses no opportunity to emphasize those huge, heart-tugging eyes. The book concludes with a spread that invites youngsters to match the babies with their mothers and a page that labels each offspring with its official name (a koala baby is called a joey, a seal baby is a pup, etc.). Ages 1-4.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-The title question is posed in bold lettering beneath illustrations of a variety of young animals. For each one, the answer is revealed with the turn of a page. For example, "I am an owl baby" shows an owlet and its mother. The gentle pictures done in acrylic and colored pencils depict adorable creatures and their mothers on soft pastel backgrounds. The images are precious and the layout makes this title perfect for storytimes. A double-page spread at the end asks viewers to match the babies on the left with the adult animals on the right. The final page provides the correct names for the babies: joey (koala), chick (penguin), cub (panda), calf (elephant), and so on. This title is destined to be a popular choice.

I bought this book because it helps in teaching reasoning to a young child. My son's preschool teacher used this book to explain a lesson in how animal babies look like their parents; and so they also look like their parents.

Our 10 month old absolutely adores this book, and has for several months now. The text is simple and rhythmic, and the illustrations are darling. Sometimes my little one has to stop and give one of the animals a kiss. I like knowing that she can grow into the book and enjoy the guessing game aspect of it when she gets a little older. I highly recommend this book -- it's one of her favorites!

I'm a big John Butler fan. This sweet but simple book is very nice but not as special as "Hush Little Ones" or some of his other books.

Five cute animals ask "Whose Baby Am I?". Turn the page and see parent and baby together. What makes all John Butler books special is the depiction of loving, comforting connection between parent and baby.

Animals include polar bears, owls, seals, pandas, and zebras. Overall cute but very simple and short, not as interesting as some of his other books. A good choice for babies and young toddlers.

Just bought this book for my baby as a souvenir from the zoo; it's much cuter, more useful, and more educational than the typical stuffed panda! This book is absolutely darling, the second I saw it I had to have it. The illustrations are top notch, the selection of animals, flawless! The book shows first a variety of the sweetest baby animals, asking, "Whose baby am I?" Then providing an equally cute picture of each baby's mama. At the end I like to ask my baby, "whose baby are you?" We love this book!!

CAREFUL The board book is abridged!! Only half of the original contents/pictures and the pages are not even in the same order. I ended up checking out the original hard cover from our local library. So disappointed :(

This is my 11-month-old daughter's favorite book. She goes into her room to "check on" it through out the day. She digs it out of a pile of books to read, even when we're in the middle of a different book. She absolutely adores it. I would recommend this board book for all babies, and I am thrilled to see there's a hardcover with more babies for when she stops chewing on all her books.

This is my 10 month old daughter's favorite book (and she has a LOT of books). It is very short and simple, but sweet, and the illustrations are very appealing. No matter what she is in the middle of it, be it playing or having a meltdown, if I pull out this book and start reading, she comes right over with a big smile on her face and pays close attention. For some reason, she laughs at every other page (the revealing of what kind of baby it is). It's very cute how much she enjoys it!

The sweet illustrations are really the selling point of this board book. There isn't much text, which is fine, but the animals aren't really familiar (a zebra, an owl, a panda bear, a seal, etc.) so my 11 month old daughter looks at me a little puzzled - but she does love the big eyed animals. We read it before bedtime, and she loves to "kiss" the animals. It is the only book that she seems to want to kiss. It is our new favorite bedtime book.
