In lucid prose, renowned science writer Seymour Simon describes how 13 different wild animals raise their young. Stunning, full-color photos help place each animal in its distinct habitat, from penguins in the Antarctic to kangaroos in the outback. Whether its a polar bear protecting her cubs or an alligator swimming away right after her babies hatch, Simon shows readers what is unique and important about each animal.
