A sweet tiger cub, padding softly on its paws across the ground. A little lion getting its head nuzzled by mama as they soak in the sun. Two young kangaroos—joeys—at play. An infant chimpanzee, clinging lovingly to its mother’s back. Nothing’s more irresistible than an animal baby, and with these magnificent photos, kids can meet the cutest ones of all, and their families, too. From two fox kits climbing on logs, to an adorable baby bunny, to a trio of polar bears huddling close to stay warm, to penguins, polar bears, eaglets, and foals, these precious creatures will fascinate human "cubs"—and entice them to look at the pictures over and over again.

Praise For My First Book of Baby Animals (National Wildlife Federation)

In bright photos, these baby animals are captured in their native habitats.  The name of each species is given, along with the appropriate name for the young of the species--swan cygnet, kangaroo joey, gorilla infant.  (The more familiar bunny is used for the young rabbit rather than kitten.)  Captivating photographs depict many of the young animals being cared for by a parent: a penguin chick begs for a hug; an eaglet rubs noses with its bald-eagle parent.  Especially charming is the photograph of the elephant calf helping its mom move a branch.  This sturdy board book will make a sweet introduction of babies to Baby.
