About the Author:

STEPHEN SWINBURNE is the author of numerous children's books about nature. A lifelong naturalist, he lives in South Londonderry, Vermont.

JOSE ARUEGO and ARIANE DEWEY together have illustrated more than sixty children's books. They both live in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3Eleven different animal species are shown here, all keeping their babies or eggs safe in a variety of ingenious and wonderful ways. Insect, mammal, reptile, bird, and marsupial all exhibit protective behaviors. The cichlid hides her young in her mouth when danger threatens, the Surinam toad hatches eggs in holes on its back, tumblebugs hide their eggs in balls of dung, etc. Not all of the animal parents are motherstwo fathers, Emperor penguin and sea horse, demonstrate that careful parenting is not gender specific. The text consists of simple rhymes about each animal; more straightforward information is given in the back of the book, where descriptive paragraphs explain the nesting, egg-laying, or other behaviors of the creatures mentioned. The brightly colored, humorous, and distinctive illustrations turn what might otherwise be simply an interesting beginning science book into a celebration of the animal world. While younger children may be puzzled by the killdeer whose pretense of being wounded in order to distract a predator is better explained in the endnotes than in the text, and by the cichlid, who appears to be eating her babies, the book provides the simple reassurance that parents are protectors.Marian Drabkin, Richmond Public Library, CA
