Discover how a huge range of animals give birth and care for their young. Meet Nile crocodile hatchlings, who chirp when they are ready to hatch, polar bear cubs who are blind for the first week and deaf for the first day, and visit the untidy nest of the Golden eagle, whose chicks can fly in just seven weeks.
From the hippopotamus to the honey bee, the albatross to the zebra, you'll uncover a whole new world of babies and their parents.
One double-page spread per animal with a large, full-colour, detailed photograph. First facts presented in easy-to-read text with simple vocabulary. Full of favourites such as penguins and elephants, plus more unusual animal babies such as the fire salamander.
