In this photographic board book, readers are introduced to the baby animals born each spring in the Great Bear Rainforest.
I love the real photos in this book! I think it is a great way to teach children the reality of these animals. Very very cool. My boys are really loving animals right now, so this was a fun one. These are unique animals too, that aren’t in every other animal book.
The photography is absolutely gorgeous and the baby animals couldn’t be any cuter! I think if you lived in the Pacific Northwest where you were familiar with and felt a connection to some of these more specific animals this would be an absolutely amazing book. Because it is geared towards such a niche audience, however, for our family it was just ok content-wise.
