Review:
The living creatures of the world carry their young in an amazing variety of ways. The author chose fourteen animals to depict the usual and novel ways of transporting the newest members of a species. The bat flies with a baby clutched to her breast; the sea otter floats on her back with her baby resting on her chest; the Great-Crested Grebe carries her babies on her back nestled in her feathers. With clear, bold, stylized double-paged spreads, the artist captures both the animal and its habitat. The fifteenth animal is human and carries a sleepy baby in her arms off to bed.
