Each book in this series follows an animal or pair of animals through having babies (or hatching eggs) and the first year of raising their young.
The series covers a lot of animals such as otters and wolves that get little coverage otherwise. I learned a lot from the books, and the kids loved them.
Both kids loved them (although the 3-year-old couldn’t always sit still through the end). The three of us have played being timber wolves, river otters, and turtles for days now.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books to my kids. We read the whole series over several days' time, and I was a little surprised that they enjoyed it so much and kept asking for more. But I am getting a little tired of being Mama Timber wolf.
This is a picture book series about animal families.
Each book discusses the lifestyles of various animals, in a very informative and age appropriate way. They are great launching pads for pretend play.
