Synopses & Reviews
Darrin Lunde has worked as a mammalogist at the American Museum of Natural History and at the Smithsonian Institute. His work has brought him into contact with all kinds of animals, big and small, throughout the remote forests of South America, Africa, and Asia where he camped for months at a time to survey species diversity and to discover new species. He is the author of HELLO, BUMBLEBEE BAT, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor Book, AFTER THE KILL, and other books about animals. He lives in Washington, DC.
Seventeen cultures, seventeen gorgeous babies. Appealing color photographs depict diverse traditions and showcase clothing worn by babies from around the world. A simple narrative helps demonstrate that no matter how different babies appear, they are all very much alike--nurtured and loved by those who care for them.
