Born To Be Wild!

Did you know that...

  • opossums give birth to fifty tiny babies at once?

  • Baby elephants weight over 200 pounds at birth?

  • a newborn giraffe is as tall as a person?

    Learn everything you ever wanted to know about exotic, irresisible baby animals in this fascinating book -- filled with full-color photographs.

    Renowned science writer Seymour Simon takes on parenthood! In lucid prose he describes how thirteen different wild animals raise their young. Stunning photographs help place each animal in its distinct habitat, from penguins in the Antarctic to kangaroos in the outback. But whether it is an enormous polar bear fiercely protecting her cubs, or a sleek alligator swimming away right after her babies hatch, Seymour Simon shows us what is unique and important about each animal.
