My baby loves this book. It's by far her favorite. Which is odd, because it's just photos of baby animals and their mothers. Thinking she loved the photos of animals aspect, I got other books featuring photos of animals, and she wasn't as into them. There's something about the way that the photos are presented in this book that she thinks is great.
I liked it because the photos of the animal babies and their mothers are adorable. But, more importantly, my son liked the illustrations too. He kept touching the baby squirrels. I liked that the animals shown (fox, skunk, squirrel...) were ones that can be found in our own backyard in the suburbs.
Although opossums gross me out, how often do you ever see pictures of their babies in board books? What a fantastic novelty! A squirrels nest is also pictured. Great for my son.
I liked this more than my 19 month old daughter did. She just wanted to look at the fox.
