How do animals carry their babies?
As a baby, how were you carried from place to place? Usually, quite carefully! The same is true for animals and their offspring. Tucked in pouches, gripped in teeth, propped on backs or underneath” these are just some of the clever ways animals carry their babies. Take note, sometimes it’s the dads who do the carrying. Once again, children’s author Marianne Berkes has created a heartwarming and informative picture book for budding animal lovers, complete with endearing and realistic artwork by Cathy Morrison. The “Explore More” sections in the back of the book feature a matching game for kids and creative activity suggestions for parents and teachers.
