PreS-Gr 3–This charming book about baby animals born in captivity features full-page color photographs. The simple text introduces each newborn. For example, “They call me Radar Ears, and I'm a fennec fox. My big ears help me hear yummy insects crawling across the sand. Listen! Did you hear that?” An interesting and unique variety of animals is represented, including an ocelot, an anteater, a spotted hyena, a mongoose, and 13 others. At the back of the book there's a corresponding silhouette for each baby that tells its name, species, zoo location, and conservation status, accompanied by a paragraph that gives interesting facts about the animal. The engaging up-close-and-personal photos will draw children into the book, and the text and extras provide good factual material to satisfy curious readers.Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA

"If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then these stunning photographs starring precious animal tykes may be priceless. The range of real-life infants featured is extraordinary in its breadth, covering such unusual zoo or aquarium residents as the crowned sifaka and the tawny frogmouth. The captivating, clear photographs pose every cub, kit and so on at its most adorable."--Kirkus Reviews"
