This book uses 20 different works of art from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to teach kids what different species of baby animals are called. The art is the main focus of the book and it shows different types including drawings, paintings, and a Japanese netsuke. I think this book was a great idea. The works of art are beautiful and it's a great way to expose kids to different types of paintings ( )

Things taken out of real works of art, and given a section with a title and information on the name of different types of baby animals. This is a really simple picture book, but it is very neat becuase all of the pictures are real works of are in museums.

Published in association with the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Cubs, kittens, calves, and more warm the pages of this elegant and entertaining springtime gift book.

In twenty works of art from the renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, young animals take center stage. From a Leonardo da Vinci drawing to an eighteenth-century Japanese netsuke, and from a Rosa Bonheur painting to a John James Audubon lithograph, baby animals of all kinds make their way in the world. Puppies play, tiger cubs nestle, goat kids gambol, an owlet stretches its wings, kittens follow their mother, an elephant calf nurses, and more, all alongside an irresistible rhyme that is great for storytime and to read aloud before bed.

A delightful book to share, Baby Animals is a great gift for baby showers, baby birthdays, and also Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and holidays year-round.
