Kid Konnection: Hey, Baby!

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you an adorable book about baby animals!

Summary: Sweet dreams are made of this! Join National Geographic Kids on a trip around the globe to celebrate nature's nursery. Get up close to adorable baby animals -- from the teensiest turtle hatchling to the biggest baby whales; from black bear cubs frolicking free in the Rocky Mountains to a kangaroo joey lounging safely in its mother's pouch. Readers will ooh and aah over the cute baby pictures, sweet stories, folktales, and poems in this lovely keepsake book. Ideal for reading to sleepy little ones! -- National Geographic Kids

I love every National Geographic Kids book that I read, but HEY, BABY: A COLLECTION OF PICTURES, POEMS, AND STORIES FROM NATURE'S NURSERY just might be my all-time favorite! Who can resist an oversized book (think coffee table!) about baby animals? I know I can't!

HEY, BABY is certain to provide hours of reading pleasure for kids (and grownups) who love baby animals! I think we all agree that baby animals are adorable, but when you add National Geographic's skill photographers and their amazing full color photos to the mix, you have a gorgeous and "awwww worthy" book.

HEY, BABY takes readers all over the world and teaches them about baby animals. The book is divided into chapters by areas -- Mountains and Plains Babies, River and Rain Forest Babies, Jungle and Savanna Babies, Desert and Coast Babies, Forest and Stream Babies, Tropics and Peaks Babies, Ice and Snow Babies, and Ocean and Sea Babies. And it also includes quality poetry, sweet stories, folktales! It truly is a celebration of animals!

I honestly can't even begin to explain how adorable this book is. Every single page I turn has a cuter photograph than the one before it, and I truly believe that every baby animal is precious. Even baby bison and octopuses are beyond cute! Don't get me wrong, the photographs are definitely my favorite part of HEY, BABY but I also appreciate the educational aspects of this book. There are brief summaries of the different animals as well as more detailed sidebars on the species.

I highly recommend HEY, BABY! It is not only one of the cutest animal books I've ever seen, but it's also a truly educational book. As far as I'm concerned HEY, BABY! is a must-have for school and home libraries.

Thanks to Media Masters Publicity for providing a review copy of this book.
