Illustrated by Andrew Kiss
Picture book / Outdoors / Nature studies
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

School Library Journal, 2003
"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."
