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.
If you like shows like _Too Cute_ on Animal Planet, but would love to see something more than typical kittens and puppies, you'll probably love this book. Animals may be photographed and profiled in as little as one page, or up to a spread of a few pages. The book is a quick read--I recommend limiting yourself to two or three little critters per day, or you may get cuteness overload--and get through the book far too quickly!
My favorites in this volume are Siku (Polar Bear), Kasi (cheetah), Yawan (Matschie's tree kangaroo) and the baby capybara, among others.
I marked this volume down one star because one of the little critters changes genders mid-biography, and there's another major typo. It's not perfect--but it's nearly so, and it's definitely worth reading.
The only thing I would change in this series is that I would love to see an inset photo of what the animals look like when they're mature adults, at least for the more unusual of animals that most of us can't readily picture. It would add to the educational value of the book to see what the animals will eventually mature into.
A great way to introduce the idea of conservation in a positive way.
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.
