SLJ Review of Animal Babies

These titles for younger readers provide appealing photographs supported by just the right amount of information. Each title focuses on the animal’s earliest years. Baby Horses, for example, covers birth, first steps, diet, and growth; the conclusion reveals when the grown animal will be ready for mating and giving birth. Facts are explained in simple, direct sentences and presented in large type. Full-page and two-page photographs take full advantage of the topic’s high potential for cuteness. Different types and breeds are depicted over the course of the animal’s stages, providing a nicely varied visual experience. Occasional insets highlight a particular feature, such as the giraffe calf’s long tongue and the llama’s toenail. A captioned photo at the back of the title identifies key body parts. VERDICT The well-executed combination of text and photographs is a good fit for young readers and browsers.
