In this showstopper of a picture book—a follow-on to Fall’s 2010 Animal Pop!—children get close to five adorable baby animals through realistic LIFE-SIZE pop-outs! A baby bunny, a sweet lamb, a wobbly pony, a family of piglets, and a line of baby ducks following their mother almost magically unfold with the turn of a page. Depicted in beautiful National Geographic photography, the babies are shown in their actual size, so children will understand how big (or how little) they really are. Special photos and captions highlight awesome animal features, and the gentle text is amusing and fun. Supplemental spreads include “The First Year of Life,” which gives a glimpse of a baby animalÕs development. The beauty and novelty of the big, appealing pop-outs make this book a treasure that children will want to open again and again. Baby Animal Pop! is a charming and well-timed selection for spring holiday gifts.
