Not all baby animals are small. A baby elephant is the size of a grocery cart, but it is small in relation to its momma. On the other hand, a fennec fox is the size of a peach at birth. There are over 40 animals featured in this book including well-known and common animals like a white-tailed deer and some others that are less known like the strawberry poison dart frog. In learning about mammals and amphibians, kids will also learn that some animals start from eggs or transform during their childhood.
From the coldest to the warmest parts of the Earth, baby animals are born every day. Read and learn with your child about a new baby animal every day.
