Great picture quality as well.

It's probably a 4x4 square but my daughter loves it and the book is great.

It's a pure endorphin hit to the brain, and a learning experience too!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Loyd E. Eskildson HALL OF FAME on December 29, 2012
Format: Hardcover
This book is filled with excellent photos of cute youngsters from zoos around the world - each with its species, name, home zoo, birth-date, and vulnerability status listed. The cover and first photo is that of a year-old polar bear in Denmark. 'Siku' ('sea ice' in Eskimo/Inuit languages) has been hand raised almost since birth because his mother could not produce enough milk. Next comes the Lesser Mouse Deer (neither mouse nor deer,), dingoes (relatively rare in the wild due to cross-breeding with gods), a lemur, a numbat (termite eater), meerkats, Brazilian tapir, etc.

A young pygmy hippo rated several pages, as did a pair of Sumatran tiger cubs being hand raised, a wombat, two giant otters, a honey badger (follows the honey guide bird to beehives, then opens the hive and shares some of the spoils), a cheetah (paired with a Labrador retriever play-pal for its lifetime), Arctic foxes, Przewalski's Horse (native to Mongolia, never domesticated), and a few monkeys.

Books with big pictures of young wild animals are not just for children!
I love showing ZOOBORNS THE NEXT GENERATION to my adult, intelligent, often very sophisticated friends, and watching their faces as they begin to flip through the book, just to be polite. Gradually, they slow down, as they begin to take in the marvelous quality of the photos of new-born wild animals, the charm of the animals themselves, and the very soft sell of a responsible approach
to the conservation of these vulnerable species. Their faces tell it all--going from mild polite interest, to smiles as they take in the
sheer beauty and joy these new-born animals radiate as they begin to explore, to laughter at the vitality of these precious animals at play. Please do yourself the favor of buying this book for yourself, and when you can finally let go of it to show it to your friends, do yourself the favor of watching their faces as they go from polite interest to smiles to laughter and joy. It happens every time.

Our 18 month old destroyed our paperback copy of the original ZooBorns book. This one lasts a little better. Great picture quality as well.

Purchased multiple copies of both Zooborns books to give as gifts this year. It is impossible to look at these pictures without making noises, which my children do in perfect unision: "aaaaaaawwwwww!" It demands to be shared with someone. Great tool for calming down and stress relief for kids and adults. It's a pure endorphin hit to the brain, and a learning experience too! Buy a bunch, it's for a good cause and a great addition to your bookshelf, car, kid amusement bag, or classroom library.
