Description

This stunning collaboration between a children's librarian and an NBA-player-turned-watercolor-artist introduces readers to a collection of baby animals doing what comes naturally--nursing. The luminous illustrations and lyrical text give children a glimpse into the worlds of 13 different mammal babies. Compelling childhood facts broaden the reader's knowledge about each species. Facts include: newborn bats consume their own weight in milk every day, and polar bear cubs are so small that they fit between the toes on their mama's paw. The overarching theme of breastfeeding inspires conversations about parenting, biology, habitats, survival, and more, making this book an engaging choice for young children as well as elementary school readers.

Review quote

This beautiful book magnificently demonstrates the natural and instinctual connection between a mother and her offspring. Breastfeeding is the first step in cultivating a healthy mind, gut and spirit for both mommy and her little ones. As a pediatrician and mother, I appreciate the simple text paired with the lovely illustrations. Brilliant and inspiring!--Kristin Struble, M.D., author of How to Be a "Poop" Detective
