Seven anxious mother animals ask the title question, "Where is my baby?" The babies are revealed beneath each flap, as are their particular baby animal names (piglet, kid, chick, lamb, etc.), and each makes its signature sound (an oink, moo, meow, quack, chirp, baa, etc.). When turned, the flap changes the mother's expression from worried to delighted. Somehow, Mr. Taback is able to capture a mother's fond look on each of his animal creations. The last spread shows a parade of all the mother and baby pairs.
