This fabulous new series introduces children by habitat to a variety of adorable animal babies. Each baby is introduced on one spread and on the next, we find out who is its mother or father. In this way, children learn to identify animal babies and their parents. This simple, questioning approach helps young children engage with growth, change and families. Animal Babies in Ponds and Rivers focusses on seven water-babies living in this habitat including hippotamuses, otters, beavers, capybaras, ducks, dugongs and swans. These charming youngsters are illustrated with delightful photographs and the lively and engaging text will ensure that children will love this book.
