Amazing Things Animals Do, a series from Owl Books, offers a unique overview of animal behavior for young children. Children are fascinated by babies, and in Little Wonders they discover the amazing number of ways that animal babies around the world are cared for and grow. From the tiny seahorse to the mighty elephant, a wide range of animals and their parenting behaviors are accurately described and delicately illustrated.
Children will be enthralled by red-billed hornbills that protect their chicks with a wall of mud, baby kangaroos that somersault to safety in mother's pouch, baby sea otters wrapped in seaweed cradles to keep them safely anchored and warm, and more.
The beautifully detailed illustrations show each animal in its own environment. A special Who's Who section at the back of the book features animal photos with more information on each animal's size, habitat and habits.
