Wild Babies by children's author Margriet Ruurs, illustrated by Andrew Kiss“Highly Recommended... Animal babies are enduringly fascinating to humans at almost every age. Although Wild Babies is a perfect book for pre-school and primary children, the power of its simple prose and lush paintings will ensure its appreciation by older children. Libraries serving elementary aged children will want to add this handsome and informative book to their collection.” - Read Full Review
Manitoba Library Association

" ..Libraries should make room on their shelves for this attractive title."
School Library Journal, 2003

Wild Babies"Kiss' paintings of baby animals are richly detailed, each painting a master of realism... Young readers are encouraged to spot the nest of robin's eggs, the words written in the grasses. An exploration of native fauna, wildlife is described in succinct fashion."
Globe & Mail, March 2003

"...Ruurs and Kiss share an appreciation of quiet beauty... This is a book for poring over on a rainy afternoon."
Quill & Quire, Feb. 2003
