Description
Animal mothers and babies--rendered in black, white, and chalky grays--are placed against b&w backgrounds, creating an eye-catching high-contrast effect. Straightforward, lower-case phrases introduce each animal pair: "the penguin mommy with her baby chick... the sheep mommy with her baby lamb."
