Description

Baby animals must know how to stay alive. The most important things every baby needs to know is how to find food and how to avoid predators. Some baby animals know these things by instinct, and others stay with their mothers until they can survive on their own. Baby birds learn how to fly, baby cats and bears learn how to climb trees, and turtle hatchlings cross dangerous beaches to reach their ocean home. Baby predators wrestle and fight each other as a way of learning to hunt, and some baby ducks and swans ride on their mothers backs until they are ready to swim on their own. This fun book provides a good lead-in for discussing what children need to know and learn, such as ways to stay healthy and safe.
