This whimsical and intriguing picture book explores the different roles of fatherhood in the animal kingdom. Readers will learn about various animal dads and their many different parenting skills: baby-sitting - an emperor penguin dad watches over the eggs for nine weeks while the mother searches for food; hunting - a wolf dad leads the pack on hunting trips and brings meat for new pups to eat; giving birth - a seahorse mother's eggs hatch inside the dad's special belly pouch. Sneed Collard's concise, clear text and award-winning artist Steve Jenkins's informative cut-paper collages reveal unique tasks that animal dads perform in raising their offspring.
Sneed B. Collard III has written more than fifty books for young people. In 2006, he received the Washington Post-Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award for his body of work. He lives with his family in Montana.To learn more about Sneed B. Collard III, visit www.sneedbcollardiii.com.
