If you are looking for a terrific snuggle-book and ALSO want to introduce your young one to animals and their offspring, you have found it. Here is a love poem uniquely combined with non-fiction that explores how parents--both human and non-human--guide their young ones. It begins: If you were my baby squirrel, / I would welcome you to the world / In a secret nest I made just for you. The illustrations are gentle, magical, and yet in no way cartoonish - simple but visually luxurious, as the illustrator intended. The featured species are squirrel, otter, bear, opossum, deer, duck, bison, wolf, fox, beaver, skunk, mountain goat, bat, and (of course) homo sapiens. A comforting, sweet-dream book for nature lovers.

From the Author:

I was inspired by my daughter to write this book, because we often talked about animals and had one particularly interesting conversation about how animals take care of their young. I decided it keep the discussion to animals found in North America (though wouldn't a baby wombat have been adorable??). I hope that your youngster will love this book as much as mine. Enjoy!
