They will love the pictures of these cute animals peeking out at the world around them. The book introduces life cycles, bodies, the foods these animals eat, how they move, and where on Earth they live.

Baby marsupials

“Kangaroos, quokkas, and wallabies- oh my! Baby Marsupials combines oversized photographs of obscure animals with interesting factoids and evocative "AHHH" inspiring illustrations of baby animals. Kalman provides clear explanations of science vocabulary with excellent use of white space...Thoughtful consideration of the youngest readers is shown throughout the book, but particularly in the index, which shows the photo of an animal along with its name. Bobbie Kalman is listed as the creator of this book, rather than the author. To that end, readers interested in unusual animals, baby animals, excellent photographs, marsupials, Australian mammals and large books will find this book appealing. Kalman has created a combination plate of quality information, broad appeal, and gorgeous pictures. The kids will love it!” —Arlington Independent School District, 08/12 “Baby Marsupials by Bobbie Kalman is also well done. This title has a picture index as well as a word index, a table of contents, and captioned illustrations that are mostly photographs. The audience is lower elementary...has much to be desired by elementary students.” —Debra Gantz, Media Center Specialist, Walled lake Consolidated School District, 04/12
