Using minimal and repetitive texts, these books present animal babies in different arenas. The series, intended for pre-readers or early guided reading, may be useful for introducing youngsters to the concept of habitats and native animals; however, it's less than helpful that most of the books neglect to identify the animals by name. Vivid photos are appropriately adorable. Reading list, websites. Ind.

PreS-Gr 1—These photo-album like titles are designed to provide pre-readers with plenty of eye candy in the form of photos of young animals, usually in natural settings, and sometimes with a visible parent, and statements that baby animals sleep, play, come in families, and similar concepts. The texts vary in word count from 20 to 62. Pages feature from single words in Farm Animals to complete simple sentences in the other books; the narratives in Baby Forest Animals and Baby Grassland Animals are almost identical. The photos are merely adequate.
