Nonfiction Monday

Here's some fun: Baby Animals, a new book from Animal Planet by Dorothea DePrisco.

Young readers are treated to a fascinating assortment of creatures from Monarch butterflies to penguins to humpback whales. Follow the development of a Spotted Owlet from hatching to fledgling to adult. Discover how some animals are born ready to live on their own like Spotted Eagle Rays and Green Anacondas, while others remain dependent on their parents for weeks, months and even years. Bear cubs remain with their mom for three years, Orangutan mothers and babies may stay together for up to ten years.

With every turn of the page, readers will be treated to facts about a host of unique animals. Male African Bullfrogs guard their tadpoles. Baby Orcas are 8 1/2 feet long and weigh up to 350 lbs at birth.
Like the other books in the series, the animal sections are interspersed with thematic units with specific tabs: How They Grow, How they Live, Where They Live, Vista (showing animals in their environment), Big Data (facts and figures), Animal Gallery (highlighting similarities and differences) and living/working (ways people interact with animals and habitats). Stunning action-filled photographs, informative notes, colorful maps and charts make for easy access to information and will delight both youngsters and adults as they explore the amazing diversity of life around the globe.
A must have for home, classroom, or school library.
