The animal kingdom offers a special fascination for children because so many of the cozy rituals they share at home are echoed in nature. All mammal mothers feed, protect, and teach their young--tasks that often challenge their own needs for survival. With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction--now in Spanish--reveals how fourteen mammals' babies travel the path from helpless infant to self-sufficient adults.Por todo el mundo, en todo tipo de h bitats, las madres traen nueva vida. Para muchos animales, tales como los reptiles y anfibios, las responsabilidades de maternidad terminan aun antes de que los beb's nazcan. Pero las cr as de los mam feros necesitan a sus madres--necesitan ser amamantadas y nutridas por suficiente tiempo para aprender a sobrevivir por su cuenta. Todas las madres de mam feros alimentan, protegen y educan a sus cr as, aunque estas tareas a menudo desaf an sus propias necesidades de supervivencia. Pero el camino de un beb mam fero a la madurez var a enormemente seg n se trate de un oso o un murci lago, una musara a o una foca, un hipop tamo o un humano. Esta introducci n fascinante al mundo de los mam feros revela c mo catorce mam feros beb's recorren el camino de ni os indefensos a adultos autosuficientes. Si mi mam fuese un ornitorrinco is also available in English as If My Mom were a Platypus. The book also comes in Dutch and Hebrew editions.
