Who’s That? Playing

Kingfisher. Kingfisher, $5.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-7534-7071-8

Readers get to know seven playful young animals in this addition to the Who’s That? series. “Who’s that splashing?” reads a typical spread, above a pondful of yellow ducks and a burst of words reading “splish splash.” The facing page explains, “I am a duckling. I have a beak and webbed feet.” Elsewhere, readers are introduced to a bounding puppy, a pair of tussling bear cubs, and some penguin chicks. It’s a lively primer on baby animals, the noises they make, and the things that make them so cute, from lambs’ “big, brown eyes” to a piglet’s “short, curly tail.” Available simultaneously: Who’s That? Eating. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
