The story starts off with a young boy explaining his mom had just had a baby and he wondered what baby animals were called in the animal kingdom. You have a page with an illustrated picture of an animal. When you turn the page you get a realistic picture of the real animal, what they are called and an animal fact. For example a baby lion is called a cub and lion cubs are born helpless and blind. Haylee read the first two pages and exclaimed, “No Way! This is a non-fiction book, cool!” She read a page and then said the name of the animal and tried to get her brother to repeat the name. It was wonderful watching them interact together with a book.

This book was reviewed by Lee Ashford for Reader's Favorites.

"I Love Baby Animals", first published under the title, "What Do You Call a Baby Lion?" by David Chuka is a very different kind of book. It is intended as a children's book, but will be quite entertaining (and educational) for many adults, as well. In the beginning a young boy tells us his mother just brought home a new baby, and that got him wondering what other animal babies are called. The format of this book is consistent and logical throughout. First is a drawing of a specific animal, with the words, "what do you call a baby ***?". The next page shows a high quality photograph of the baby of that animal, and tells us "a baby *** is called a ###." Many of the names will be familiar to the adults, and a few will even be familiar to the child. But how many people know what you call a baby alligator? What do you call a baby kangaroo? What do you call a baby snake? What do you call a baby jellyfish?

The author did a very thorough job of researching the material for this book. I assure you adults will be as fascinated as the children are at the names of some of these animals. This book lends itself well to having the adult, over time, omit reading some of the baby names, and let your child try to recall them. There may be some a child will never remember; there may even be some the adult will never remember! But overall, there will be many your child will learn and remember, even though he/she has never heard them before.

This book has minimal text. The entertainment of your child is provided by the pictures and the names of the babies, several of which will be quite funny sounding, even through numerous repetitions of reading the book aloud. I am sure your child will enjoy this book no matter how many times you read it to him/her. The quality photography is sufficient to keep YOU interested as you read it to your child. I highly recommend this book for your children. This author has several other books available; I am confident they are as well-conceived and executed as is this one.

A Charming Young Child's Book

I like Author David Chuka's children's books. They are simple, illustrations very appealing to children, and not too long to lose a child's interest. However, I feel the dog illustration reflecting a growling, threatening dog should be changed to a more friendly dog. But other than that, it's a very inviting book.

Man, I wish I knew what was going through my head 5 years ago when I saw this freebie and decided to go for it. I didn't have kids then, I don't have kids now, but there it was, in my list of content and devices!

So, I think this is a topic covered better in other books. You wanna know what the babies of any species are called? Wikipedia that shit! The pictures of said baby animals are cute, but you can google image that shit! As for the pictures of adult animals, they're just bad illustrations. Maybe they were done with Microsoft paint, I don't know.

It's okay for a free ebook I guess, but you could buy better. Hell, I'll bet you can *free* better.

I Love Baby Animals: Fun Children's Picture Book with Amazing Photos of Baby Animals by David Chuka is described as "perfect as a bedtime story and also for your loved ones who are learning to read". The book offers a collection of photographs and illustrations of animals and their young, encouraging children to guess the special name for each kind of baby animals.

I Love Baby Animals is a good concept, and my kids love animals so I thought this book would be a hit. However, I was disappointed in the cartoonish illustrations of the adult animals. The photographs of the baby animals were wonderful, as was the opportunity for my children to guess each name and learn a little something about each of the animals included. Illustrations of every style can be beautiful and well done, but here I felt like they were very amateurish.

I Love Baby Animals is great for introducing new vocabulary and for pictures of cute baby animals (most of which you can find online). However, the combination of cartoony illustrations and photographs just did not work for me.

Makes me wish I still had a little one at home. Absolutely adorable. Asks the question "What are baby animals called?"

I was tricked. They picked the cutest baby animal and put it on the cover. I was expecting lots more "that's the cutest ___ ever! But no. I've already seen the best , on the cover. The book is laid out with pages with cartoonish drawings of adult animals with the question, "What is a baby ____ called?" Flip the page and it's a photo of the baby animal. I didn't like the combo of cartoons and photos. Also the very first picture which shows a little boy with his mother and brand new baby sister is creepy! Not a good start.

You'd be better off doing a google image search. I was really disappointed with this book. In fact, when you google image search the names of the specific animals (Baby Lion or Lion Cub for example), a number of the "amazing photos" come up within the top results...

The titled hedgehog for example is listed on numerous sites including this one...

Don't buy this book. You're paying $2.99 for curated photos.

Good entry to keep on the Kindle

Keeping books handy on the Kindle that are suitable for the youngest readers can be a challenge, but this is a good example of one that works across a wide age range. Simple, well illustrated with tons of cute baby animals. Delightful!

A pretty poor baby animals book. The art for the grown up animals is vaguely disturbing. They grimace angrily and generally look unpleasant. Then poorly picked stock photos cover the babies. Disappointing. Not even worth the cost of free.

I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion. This book cover is on my Pinterest board and my blog, Michelle Dragalin’s Journey.

Good introduction to baby animals

More photographs and additional info would be a nice addition once kids have grasped the concept of baby animal names.

I was a bit underwhelmed with this one, but my two kiddos had a decidedly different view, and really liked this book. The concept of a cartoon adult with a real picture of the baby animal was fun.

Appropriate for 2-6. I enjoyed the pics as well as learning about the baby animals names. Well done. Kids liked too.

The most half-assed "book" I've ever had the misfortune to "read". The "magazines" I put together as seven-year-old in Word 95 had more effort put into them than this.
