Welcome! Parents are always so proud to introduce their new baby to the world ... and animals are no exception. In this book you'll find cleverly worded birth announcements for animals of the sea, air, and land.
Kids will love this engaging picture book that lets them do the thinking and guessing about animals. In addition to the riddle vignettes, there are more details about each species in the back.
The kids had fun putting together the clues to guess the baby animal. And of course they loved the name Mrs. P.U. Smell!
This is a wonderfully clever book. There is plenty of double entendre to cause an adult to giggle. I was surprised how quickly they guessed the animals. Each riddle has clues, but none is an out-and-out give-away (at least for a Kindergartner).
This is a book of twelve riddles about animals kids know and love.
The main part of the book offers information about animals. You can expand the learning by going back over the illustrations to talk about the animal's habitat, or use the added details in the back. There are also opportunities to build on math (numbers, size) and calendar.

Borrow, at least. The book is clever, and even when the kids know the answer, they will still want to come back to it. You can also add to the fun by creating games from the information (e.g., organize a calendar, line them up by size, weight, height, etc
