"Page after page of baby tigers, otters, penguins, and apes so overbearingly adorable it hurts just to look at them.”
“Zooborns pulls off the difficult task of being cute and interesting for people of all ages while also being informative.”
“The book’s 150 pages is barely enough to contain the sickening cuteness of dozens of snuggly young animals. . . a book rich in both content and visually stunning photography.”

It's a perfect example of what the web should be and this book is a delightful way to enjoy it offline. Gorgeous pictures, with just enough information to make you want more- but it's all about the pictures.
In ZooBorns pages, you will find well known animals like orangutans, giraffes and kangaroos. However, you will also see photos of animals like the crowned sifaka and the rock hyrax that I've personally never seen or heard of before.
ZooBorns is more of a photo/coffee table book than one that required dedicated reading. The images are too adorable for words and you will definitely find an animal or two that you knew nothing before opening this book. It's likely to appeal to adults and children alike, and will surely spark a conversation in any room!
This book has truly been a delight in our home. From the moment it arrived I began to look over it with both the Turkeybird and Littlebug a few pages at a time. They've absolutely loved it, but Littlebug even more so. She's definitely more of an animal gal. One of the more enjoyable parts about the book is being able to explain to them the stories that accompany many of the animals, like this one for the baby Crowned Sifaka named Tahina...
"With her mother unable to care for her, tiny Tahina relied on zookeepers for nourishment and a stuffed teddy bear for comfort.
"Crowned sifaka lemurs are found only in Madagascar, and their survival is threatened by deforestation. Less than 1,000 remain in the wild." p.55 ZooBorns
I was able to share with them the stories of these incredible animals, what they could do to help and how one day they may be able to visit them in person. It's been extremely enjoyable. Obviously you might have already guessed Littlebug's favorite animal was the elephant, but it was even before the book (she's just a gal who loves elephants, who knew?). The Turkeybird on the other hand loved the Green Turtles with their dark shells, he said he'd like to visit the aquarium
again to touch one. We'll see if he actually does.
Overall, I feel like ZooBorns was an extremely enjoyable read.Read more ›
The book is small and square so it doesn't take up a lot of room on a table or shelf.
I was very excited to learn of this new book, "ZooBorns" by Andrew Bleiman and Chris Eastland. It is a cute, small book with beautiful colored photos of baby animals from all over the world. It includes the names of the animals, their species, birthdates, background stories and their endangered status. My son and I have spent lots of time looking at this book, over and over again! This is indeed a great gift for any animal lover, no matter the age.It's very affordable, retailing at only $9.99. Plus, 10% of all revenue goes directly to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Conservation Endowment Fund, so you'll be helping out animals at the same time! Bleiman and Eastland have also created a juvenile edition of this book, ZooBorns! Zoo Babies from Around the World. Please check out Zooborns.com for more information on this adorable project!
