My Review: This is a well written rhyme book about baby animals who accomplish their goals no matter what. The book starts with a young deer learning how to stand up strong, “It’s not easy to stand up strong. I shake and sway, but move along”, or a little bird trying its best to fly. “It’s not easy to leave the nest. I flap my wings. I try my best.” A boy trying to hit a baseball, “It’s not easy to hit a ball. But I can catch it as it falls.”

Then the encouraging written words by the author “Frie
E VIAU, N. Baby forest animals and children and how they overcome challenges and gain confidence at what they're doing.

A wonderful story for every little one who wonders whether he or she will ever ride a bike, be old enough to go to school, get dressed by themselves, etc.

This beautifully illustrated book demonstrates that babies in the wild have to overcome obstacles with determination and perseverance. For example, a baby bird must learn how to fly, a baby raccoon must learn to climb, etc.

With that attitude instilled in our little ones, our children will soon be saying,"Mom or Dad, look what I can do!"

A good readaloud title for little ones just starting to test their wings, this book follows a fawn testing out its legs, a snake learning to slither fast, and a toad learning to catch flies on its tongue, among others, as each one finds that trying new things gets easier each day. The old adage that practice makes perfect applies here. Providing support for young risk-takers, the softly-hued illustrations celebrate the great outdoors affectionately.

Great book to show kids that learning things is not easy, don't give up, keep practicing. Shows baby animals practicing different things... like cubs trying to catch fish. An almost nonfiction version of leo the late bloomer using all kinds of wild animals. Eventually comes around to showing kids learning to do things to.

Animals of the "forest, field, and stream," each attempt to do something that is a milestone for growth and development. Each does its best. At the end of the text, children are also doing the same. Story seems a bit weak.

Simple rhyming text with supportive illustrations with a good message that is a little didactic.
