See a baby beaver help build a dam, watch baby chicks learn how to scratch for food, and catch baby walruses basking on an iceberg in the sun. Including every kind of animal, from birds and insects to mammals and reptiles, Big Babies, Little Babies delivers a huge amount of information in a storybook-like style.
This is a great little book. Olivia was positively delighted with the pictures of all the baby animals and pretty much claimed the book for her own as soon as it arrived. She loves to have me read about all the babies and she practices going through the pages saying the animal names. So cute.
Here is a Moose...
Here is an Elk...
So not the same animal.
That has actually caused much laughter in our home since we have told most of our friends about it and they all think it is hilarious. Now perhaps in other countries Moose and Elk are interchangeable... but us Canadians just think that is crazy! lol
Anyway, funny mix-up aside this book is great and a good way of teaching kids about animals. As long as you make sure to tell them that Moose and Elk are different animals. :)
Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
