Animal Babies in Ponds and Rivers

Jennifer Schofield, Author Kingfisher $7.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7534-5790-0

Four Animal Babies titles feature close-up photos of the different offspring in the wild along with a couple of clues, then ask the question, ""Who is my mommy?"" Turning the page, readers get the photographic answer as well as a bit of information about the lives and habits of the creatures shown. One example in Animal Babies in Polar Lands shows a close-up with this clue ""I have flippers instead of legs. They help me swim very quickly in cold water"" a flip of the page reveals a seal. The other titles: Animal Babies in Rain Forests; Animal Babies in Grasslands; and Animal Babies in Ponds and Rivers. (May)
