Nonfiction Monday--Zoo Borns!
Zoo Borns! Zoo babies from around the world by Andrew Bleiman and Chris Eastland. NY: Beach Lane Books, 2010.
Full page photographs of newborn zoo babies accompany a few short sentences about each animal. But these are not common American animals -- they're from around the world.
Most confusing to me was the difference between the Aardvark, which I had always thought was an anteater, and the anteater, otherwise known as a Tamandua. Ah, at the back of the book is more information about each animal. The Aardvark eats termites and the Anteater eats ants.
Adorable photo of a baby white tiger on the cover!
