"Adorable book! Beautiful illustrations! What a fun way to teach kids about certain animals- by relating them to their moms & dads. Parents are the center of the world to kids. This book really gives them a centered comparison they'd understand. There are lots of facts but they're laid out in little sections which makes it much less overwhelming. This would be a great intro to a research project or a compare/contrast writing piece on animals life to their life (parents)." - VR (Educator)
For animals, mommies and daddies are also very important. And the nine animals you'll get to know in this book are very caring parents! Discover the world of the emperor penguin, the fox, the orangutan, the clown fish, the American flamingo, the red kangaroo, the zebra finch, the wolf, and the yellow seahorse.

"A further strong entry to this series, that each time highlights one aspect of animal life on earth, and gives us an up-close, detailed look at nine examples. This one, on animal parenting, starts with the extraordinary endurance of emperor penguin parents, before switching to foxes, orang utans, clown fish, flamingos, and so on. The entry style for each is the standard for the series - a huge and attractive double-page portrait, then a look at each critter's anatomy, range, speed, diet, and so on. The third spread each time has four short paragraphs (written as if from the animal's point of view, when confusingly the introduction is the adult speaking) overlaid on an illustration showing their family life. Child-friendly and then some, this is a great introduction to some animals children will want to know more about, and just about manages to rein in the anthropomorphism. Definitely four stars.
