Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first day of life is different for every animal. Human newborns donand#8217;t do much at all, but some animals hit the ground running. The Caldecott Honorand#8211;winning team Steve Jenkins and Robin Page apply their considerable talents to revealing howand#160;twenty twoand#160;different species, from the emperor penguin to the Siberian tiger, adapt to that traumatic first few hours of life, with or without parental help. Jenkinsand#8217;s vividly colorful cut-paper illustrations are eye-poppingly three-dimensional and as exquisite as ever. While the text is short and sweet, an illustrated guide provides descriptions of theand#160;twenty twoand#160;animals in the back. Fantastic!
