Got this book at one of my daughter's check ups. It's a pretty simple book, aimed at getting toddlers to engage more with the natural world around them. The basic concept is to show a baby animal with a short description and then to ask whose baby it is. When you turn the page, you discover the answer. It's good for toddlers, because it invites them to try to answer the question. My daughter will enthusiastically offer guesses (some of which are right and some of which are not).

I like the illus
A child and his mother take a walk around a pond and try to identify baby animals on the way. A guessing type book (whose baby is this?) with some that young children will likely recognize (the baby deer and turtle)and others that will be new (like the fluffy loon -- love the picture of the baby riding on mom's back). Simple text and bright collage illustrations make it a good choice for a toddlers and twos.
A young boy and his mama find different babies at the pond: duck, turtle, frog, deer, and loon.
Could be used for a Toddler Time about baby animals, ducks, frogs or pond life.
Short and sweet. Beautiful, simple illustrations.
