The animal kingdom offers a special fascination for children because so many of the cozy rituals they share at home are echoed in nature. All mammal mothers feed, protect, and teach their young -- tasks that often challenge their own needs for survival. With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction reveals how fourteen mammals babies travel the path from helpless infant to self-sufficient adults.
This fun, science-though-literature book aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards.
