Baby Animals, Pets: Kingfisher

Okay, Kingfisher has the cutest series about baby animals. I chose Baby Animals, Pets to feature first. I just looked to find the author/illustrator, and it appears the images were compiled from various sources and credited on the the back cover.

Regardless, the design and images will melt your heart. A puppy, hamster, guinea pig, kitten, birds, rabbit, and foal are featured. Each receives a half spread accompanied by text on the left with a smaller image of the animal and her sound or movement. Text has been altered and arranged to imitate the featured animal.

Totz and adults will love these bright images paired with vivid background colors. How can you not respond to little guinea pig lips and baby budgies?
