"I cannot tell you how happy I am to see these new additions to the Nature Babies series. While I was still teaching and working as a teacher-librarian, I used them in classroom studies and as suggested nonfiction for the kids in our K-5 school.
"This wife and husband team do a superb job of bringing nature and its many inhabitants to young readers. The writing is straightforward and very informative, telling readers a clear story of the first months in the life of many young creatures. They are geared toward 5-8-year olds with clear, contextual photographs. Readers learn about habitat, diet, parenting, predators, the hunt for food and the search for safety. The focus on one species at a time proves very valuable."
