In this photographic board book, readers are introduced to the baby animals born each spring in the Great Bear Rainforest.
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.
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.
