Animal parents carry their young in many different ways. Some tote babies on their backs. Others dangle them from their mouths or prop them on their shoulders.
From kangaroos carrying babies in pouches in the Australian Outback to penguin babies perched on their parents’ feet in the frozen Antarctic, each animal family is shown in its natural habitat. The story ends on a reassuring note with a human baby snuggled in her mother’s arms.
In straightforward language and bright, colorful pictures, author-illustrator Susan Stockdale shows young children how animals around the world transport their young.
