9780395836217: Animal Dads

This whimsical and intriguing picture book explores the different roles of fatherhood in the animal kingdom. Readers will learn about various animal dads and their many different parenting skills: baby-sitting - an emperor penguin dad watches over the eggs for nine weeks while the mother searches for food; hunting - a wolf dad leads the pack on hunting trips and brings meat for new pups to eat; giving birth - a seahorse mother's eggs hatch inside the dad's special belly pouch. Sneed Collard's concise, clear text and award-winning artist Steve Jenkins's informative cut-paper collages reveal unique tasks that animal dads perform in raising their offspring.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2. Animal Dads takes a refreshing look at the natural world with fathers cast in the caregiver role. Fish, birds, and mammals demonstrate a wide array of parenting skills as the male of the species protects, feeds, and teaches. Each father and his offspring are presented on a single or double-page spread, illustrated with striking, cut-paper collage figures. The large, lifelike creatures are set against backgrounds that are true to each animal's natural habitat. Representing rivers, woods, grasslands, treetops, and desert burrows, the backdrops make for an interesting and varied layout. There are two levels of text; a simple explanatory sentence in large print and more detailed information about the behavior of each animal father in small print make this book appropriate for different age groups. Mentioned briefly are dads that do not participate in the rearing of their young. As animal fathers have been overshadowed by the numerous books featuring animal mothers, this unique selection helps balance the science shelves for young children.?Diane Nunn, Richard E.
