Born in the Wild, by Lita Judge, Roaring Brook Press, 2014.
This picture book is pretty darn near perfect. It was on my son's teacher's wish list, so I bought it, and I am so glad that I did. It's a pretty simple book: mother animals love their baby animals, and a few facts about the mammals in question.
The illustrations, however, ARE perfect. The cover is eye-catching, and the internal illustrations are just as good.
