Children love to read about different kinds of animal families. In this fascinating new book, simple text explains how animals behave toward their young in different and sometimes surprising ways, from fish and reptile mothers who leave their young to fend for themselves to male wolves and penguins who help raise their babies. Engaging photographs also show how mammal mothers teach their young survival skills and how some animals live together in groups.
