An entertaining and informative look at the tough beginnings some baby animals must face in their first moments of life.
"It's tough to begin on the beaches,it's tough to begin in the seas,it's hard to hang on to your mother,it's hard to jump out of the trees . . ."
When human babies are born, their parents care for them until they're old enough to live on their own. Other babies have to grow up a whole lot faster.
A baby giraffe must stand within an hour of being born, or its mother will abandon it. A baby sea turtle needs to race from the sand to the safety of the sea moments after it hatches. These are just a few of the amazing survival stories you'll find in this book.
So if you ever thought baby animals had it easy, step into their world and take a look at some really tough beginnings.
