Description

The first day of life is different for every animal. Human newborns don t do much at all, but some animals hit the ground running. The Caldecott Honor winning team Steve Jenkins and Robin Page apply their considerable talents to revealing howtwenty twodifferent species, from the emperor penguin to the Siberian tiger, adapt to that traumatic first few hours of life, with or without parental help. Jenkins's vividly colorful cut-paper illustrations are eye-poppingly three-dimensional and as exquisite as ever. While the text is short and sweet, an illustrated guide provides descriptions of thetwenty twoanimals in the back. Fantastic
