Baby Animal Pop!

With 5 Incredible Life-Size Foldouts
PreS-Gr 2—This well-written book has exquisite life-size photos. Between the appealing pictures, an educational text for older children details the environment, anatomy, food, and homes of bunnies, ducklings, piglets, lambs, and ponies. The diagrams and photos give youngsters insight into the first year of the animals' lives. There are also fun asides like the fact that President Woodrow Wilson grazed sheep on the White House lawn. The repeated use of the foldouts (which fold up and out larger than the book itself) could lead to quick wear and tear. This lovely book deserves consideration as long as the foldouts do not present a problem.—Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA
