About the Book

Do animals have mothers too? Of course they do – just like me and you!

Meet the little joey whose Kangaroo mother carries him in her pouch, and the cygnet who rides on the back of the mother swan, just two members of Eric Carle's animal family.

Animal babies with their caring and affectionate mothers come to life in Carle's vibrant collage. The playful question and answer text invites children and adults to read aloud together. Repetition of key phrases helps preschoolers take the first step towards reading readiness. The gamelike format makes it easy to discover more about the world of nature and to learn the common names of some familiar – and not-so-familiar – animals. At the back of the book there is a special page listing the correct, but sometimes surprising names of animal babies, their parents and groups.
