9780064462068: Wild Babies

Born To Be Wild!

Did you know that...

  • opossums give birth to fifty tiny babies at once?

  • Baby elephants weight over 200 pounds at birth?

  • a newborn giraffe is as tall as a person?

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about exotic, irresisible baby animals in this fascinating book -- filled with full-color photographs.

Renowned science writer Seymour Simon takes on parenthood! In lucid prose he describes how thirteen different wild animals raise their young. Stunning photographs help place each animal in its distinct habitat, from penguins in the Antarctic to kangaroos in the outback. But whether it is an enormous polar bear fiercely protecting her cubs, or a sleek alligator swimming away right after her babies hatch, Seymour Simon shows us what is unique and important about each animal.

About the Author:

Seymour Simon has been called "the dean of the [children's science book] field" by the New York Times. He has written more than 250 books for young readers and has received the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Lifetime Achievement Award for his lasting contribution to children's science literature, the Science Books & Films Key Award for Excellence in Science Books, the Empire State Award for excellence in literature for young people, and the EducationalPaperback Association Jeremiah Ludington Award. He and his wife, Liz, live in Great Neck, New York. You can visit him online at www.seymoursimon.com, where you can read "Seymour Science Blog," participate in "Writing Wednesday," and download a free four-page teacher guide to accompany this book, putting it in context with Common Core objectives. Many of Seymour's award-winning books are also available as ebooks.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4. Simon spotlights 13 animal babies from a few different continents and both poles. While the focus is on mammals, a bird, a reptile, and an amphibian are included. The full-color photographs are striking and generous, and most often portray the youngster with its mother. The accompanying page of information is written in a simple but lively manner to pique the interest of young readers. The book has a logical flow as animals from similar environments follow one another, and both the text and the photographs provide some glimpses of the diverse habitats in which these creatures live. This is a beautiful browsing book, but it does not include maps, a glossary, or even all the basic facts about each animal. Bruce McMillan's The Baby Zoo (Scholastic, 1992) covers similar ground, but the subjects were photographed in a zoo, not in the wild.?Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
