Meet some adorable baby animals -- a wobbly foal, a playful kid, muddy piglets and many more. Young children will love seeing familiar baby animals, discovering new ones and learning their special names.
The much-loved Hello Animals collection has been praised for combining a brilliantly simple concept and factual but easy-to-understand words with vibrant, detailed illustrations.
The latest in Loes Botman's luminous board book series.
Praise for the Hello Animals board book series:
'Luminous snoozy images depict the animals peacefully curled up in their woodland, farm, and home environments. Each animal is surrounded with warm, halo-like colors and visual textures that echo their environments, from barnyard hay to warm, deep dens, bringing gentle artistry to the pages and an invitation for readers, too, to bed down.'
- Publishers Weekly
'Soft, vivid pastel portraits of animals in their natural habitats make this British import stand out... There are just a few pages, but each one is worth spending some time with.'
- Maria Russo, The New York Times
'By keeping the text spare, Botman allows readers to focus on the illustrations, which are quite lovely and have a comforting, mottled look. A charming and very simple introduction to animals and their sleeping habits for babies and toddlers.'
- Kirkus Reviews
'Botman's latest nature-themed work does double duty, offering a few facts to the youngest of readers while gently lulling them to sleep. Children learn about the nocturnal habits of various creatures -- cows and sheep bed down in the hay, while rabbits and bears sleep in dens (the contrast between the hulking bear and the tiny bunny is delightful). Set against vivid, detailed backgrounds, these sumptuous illustrations will have eyelids drooping in no time.'
- School Library Journal
'The soft, bright pastel renderings give detail to each insect. Children may be inspired to act out the simple verbs for each insect. A nice book for little backyard gardeners.'
- Youth Services Book Review
'With gorgeous illustrations and descriptive words that are fun to say, this is a board book young children will enjoy looking at.'
- Through The Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews
