Explores the birth, maternal relationship, and growth of such mammals as African elephants, Pacific gray whales, hooded seals, polar bears, orangutans, and humans.

Middle graders learn how fourteen mammals are born, eat, sleep, learn, and mature.
The animal kingdom offers a special fascination for children because so many of the cozy rituals they share at home are echoed in nature. All mammal mothers feed, protect, and teach their young—tasks that often challenge their own needs for survival. With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction reveals how fourteen mammals babies travel the path from helpless infant to self-sufficient adults.
