There are multiple reasons why I did not like this book. First, the illustrations don't enhance the story at all. Each page has a white background with a baby animal and its parents in the picture. There was too much blank space in my opinion for such short children's book. Second, the language is too patterned. Every page says basically the same sentence but with a different animal. For example, one page says, "This is a fawn, Whose baby is it?" the next page follows with, "It belongs to a mother and father deer." Another page says almost the same thing, "This is a pup, whose pup is it?" the next page follows with, "It belongs to a bull seal and a cow seal." I understand that the book is for very young readers and that repetition can make it easier to read, but I feel that this language/writing is just boring. There also wasn't really a message of the story other than teaching the reader who the baby animals belonged to. ( )

“Whose Baby” was a very interesting book. The main message of this book was to associate the baby animal with the parent animal. I enjoyed the writing style of this author in that all the names of the animals were there like cub, lion and lioness. This showed the reader all the names of each one for their gender and the baby name. This showed that there isn’t just one group of names for a type of animal. Also the placement of the words with in the book was also intriguing for the baby animal would be named on page while its parents would be named on another. I also believe the pictures help with this book. For all the pictures seemed as if they were taking with a camera and not just drawn in. This helps the reader to associate the names with the actual animal. Also this allows for the reader to identify the animals in real life. ( )
