About the book 

Babies of every species are created to be cuddled, nurtured and loved.  This charming book with its beautiful illustrations will highlight how different baby animals are taken care of and treasured by their parents.  

This book is a celebration of love and caring as young baby animals are doted upon, nuzzled and carried whether in snowy caves, cozy nests or perhaps right in your own home... it's a lovefest to be honoured.

Written in both English and Spanish the simple text and the gorgeous illustrations make a perfect marriage.  The book is a wonderful introduction to animal families and their habitats.  There is a comprehensive Teacher's Guide available for download in both languages which is sure to get kids wanting to learn more about these animals habits.

This charming book is very sweet and perfect to share with wee ones.  I'm sure after the last page is read a wrap around hug is the perfect way to seal its message into the hearts of all who partake in this tender story.  I highly recommend this book.
