The animals are mostly realistic though with anthropomorphized smiles, and they are placed against soft backgrounds—the overall look is generally benign, although the black eyes with white highlights have an occasionally creepy look, particularly on the tigers. Brief “animal facts” round out the book.

Synopsis

Whether they're dashing, splashing, munching, or crunching, baby animals are ever-exploring! At home in their natural habitats, baby animals learn about the world that surrounds them. When the fun is done, it's time for baby animals to go to sleep. After all, every baby animal has to rest.

Full of action, sound effects, and patterned text, each story features the adorable antics and accurate behavior of six wild animal babies: tiger, elephant, giraffe, rhinoceros, panda, and gorilla. This 64-page, beautifully designed story book is perfect for bedtime.
