This is a great book to read with ECE level readers because they get to use deductive reasoning skills to determine what each baby will become! It talks about birds, mammals, and amphibians to give children a well-rounded idea of what the animal kingdom of babies is really like. With lift-the-flaps, the book is very engaging!
A fun, vibrant, interactive book featuring animal life cycles. One part features a small, furry, white animal. Lifting the flap reveals that the animal will be a polar bear. The next spread of pages provides 4 facts about polar bears through its life cycle. Other animals included in the story are: butterfly, sea turtle, frog, and bird. The final page includes a picture of a baby and a flap that reveals a little boy.

This is a great book to use with older preschool students. It can also be used a...more

This book can be used to show the life cycle of animals. Teachers could put the first stage of each animal depicted in the book on tables and ask students to predict what will happen next. Students will listen to a read aloud of this book to understand the life cycles of each animal and restructure their ideas. This would be an appropriate for students in second grade.
I liked the other book I read in this series better, but this one is fine for teachers wanting lift the flap titles. I should have done a picture walk prior to reading it and I might have gotten the polar bear baby from the cover. OK for what it is.
Cute guessing game about life cycles for preschoolers. Probably not likely to be read over and over again, but a fun choice.
Love this! Can't wait to use it for a class at Tyler Arboretum. I am becoming a fan of Nicola Davies books!

"I was very small when I saw my first dolphin," says zoologist Nicola Davies, recalling a seminal visit with her father to a dolphin show at the zoo. Enchanted at the sight of what she called the "big fish" jumping so high and swimming so fast, she determined right then that she would meet the amazing creatures again "in the wild, where they belonged." And indeed she did--as part of a pair of scie...more
