Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"This jaunty rhyming book explains how animal parents keep their young from getting eaten. Cheerfully light verse delivers the facts and bright cartoon artwork strikes a chipper note," said PW. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3Eleven different animal species are shown here, all keeping their babies or eggs safe in a variety of ingenious and wonderful ways. Insect, mammal, reptile, bird, and marsupial all exhibit protective behaviors. The cichlid hides her young in her mouth when danger threatens, the Surinam toad hatches eggs in holes on its back, tumblebugs hide their eggs in balls of dung, etc. Not all of the animal parents are motherstwo fathers, Emperor penguin and sea horse, demonstrate that careful parenting is not gender specific. The text consists of simple rhymes about each animal; more straightforward information is given in the back of the book, where descriptive paragraphs explain the nesting, egg-laying, or other behaviors of the creatures mentioned. The brightly colored, humorous, and distinctive illustrations turn what might otherwise be simply an interesting beginning science book into a celebration of the animal world. While younger children may be puzzled by the killdeer whose pretense of being wounded in order to distract a predator is better explained in the endnotes than in the text, and by the cichlid, who appears to be eating her babies, the book provides the simple reassurance that parents are protectors.Marian Drabkin, Richmond Public Library, CA

By Camille Loparrino on February 23, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Safe, Warm, and Snug has beautiful illustrations which are conducive to drawing with your students. The information given is factual and science related, but they are presented in a fun way, that is, through rhythm and rhyme. There are several themes to explore, such as, camouflage, anti-stereo types in the animal kingdom, and adaptation. I guarantee this is a book you will enjoy as much as your students.
