Baby on Board: How Animals Carry Their Young

By Marianne Berkes
Illustrated by Cathy Morrison

Human parents carry their babies in their arms, special carriers, and slings, but how do animals carry their babies? This beautifully illustrated book for toddlers and young readers explores how kangaroos, opossums, penguins, and even spiders get their young from one place to another. The youngest readers will love the bright pictures and sing-song rhymes, while older children can enjoy the interesting animal facts included on each page. The back of the book also includes games and links to online educational resources.
