This adorable picture book features dozens of baby animals from familiar species like the Elephant and Rabbit, to strange species like the Long-Eared Jerboa and the Serval. The photographs of these cute little babies are colorful and sweet! There are tiny cartoon characters drawn into the corners of the pages who cheer for the babies.

The text describes all the things we love about animal babies, their soft fur, their stripes, and fins. Their hooves, and paws. Their snuffles and snorts, their

This is a cute book for young children. Using actual photographs of baby animals to illustrate their cuteness in a charming manner, the book rhythmically rollicks along with a cheerful, gleeful free rhyme that brings joy to the reader.

Cute little cartoonish cheerleaders join in as they chant "We love babies! Yes we do!" encouraging the listening child to cheer and chant along.

At the back of the book, a couple of pages are dedicated to identifying the baby animals.

What's NOT to love about WE LOVE BABIES? Colorful, adorable photos of baby animals paired with Esbaum's always "spot-on" rhyming text leaves the reader happily joining in the cartoon animals' cheer, "We love babies. Yes, we do! We love babies! How about you?" As an added bonus a Meet the Babies section is included that shows each of the fifty-four baby animals. A perfect opportunity to play "Who can find....the zebra or the elephant or the donkey?" This book is a must-have for any family ...more

This adorable picture book teaches children about the fascinating features of a variety of baby animals--in rhyme! ("We love snouts and bills and beaks, bendy trunks and whiskered cheeks.") Sure to please animal lovers of all ages!

At first glance, this is just a basic rhyming book about baby animals. This is true. However, it is a basic rhyming book about baby animals produced by the publisher that has the printing rights to the best pictures of baby animals in the world. So, there.

Beautiful pictures of baby animals some of which are not the typical. My favorite was the baby sloth on the cover, but there was also a baby jerboa.
