This amazing journey across North America takes readers from mountains to prairies, to the far north, and into coastal waters to visit animal families in their natural habitats. As they meet a variety of feathered and furry friends, including loons, polar bears, wolves, beavers, seals, and caribou, children learn how the families play, communicate, feed, and learn. Each animal is presented along with interesting facts about its environment. Other facts come from the animal itself; the moose calf, for instance, explains how it will grow huge antlers. Romi Caron’s charming watercolors, full of personality and expression, complement Marilyn Baillie’s lyrical text.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Realistic watercolors of North American animal parents and their young sprawl across facing pages, leaving ample space for two paragraphs of simple text. One is boxed, enclosing a modest amount of straightforward data, and the other, on the opposite page, voiced by the "babies," giving tiny snippets of "babyhood" and a glimpse of future, adult life. A final page offers a tad more data for the mildly curious. Similar in scope to Andrea Helman's Northwest Animal Babies (Sasquatch, 1998) and more geographically focused than Bruce McMillan's handsome The Baby Zoo (Scholastic, 1995), Seymour Simon's attractive Wild Babies (HarperCollins, 1997), or Kathy Darling's more detailed, eye-catching books about animal babies (Walker), this oversize, attractive, and easy-to-read book is a pleasing introduction.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
