School Library Journal, June 2020

"Full of adorable photographs of fox pups, tiger cubs, and more, these broad overviews explore different types of baby animals. Written at a first grade reading level, each title covers the animal's diet, home, and how it grows up, along with a smattering of fun facts, including amusing weight comparisons between newborn animal babies and common household items. These basic introductions do not offer in-depth details, and text features such as maps and diagrams sometimes feel like a missed opportunity to provide more specific facts. Page arrangements are attractive and easy to follow, with one short paragraph positioned next to an eye-catching photograph. Vocabulary words are bold with a definition on the same page. VERDICT While more entertaining than informative, this cute series will have a wide appeal at the elementary level with its irresistible subject matter."

Booklist, April 2020

"Young readers will love cozying up to this entry in the Baby Animals series (6 titles). Chapter one shows a joey snuggled with its mother in a tree as it hunkers down for a nap. The large-size text then describes how koalas are teeny tiny when they're born and do a lot of their growing in their mothers' pouches; a weight comparison infographic effectively shows how a newborn joey is lighter than a peanut! Photos are the true joy of this book, and a two-page vertical spread identifying a fluffy joey's parts (ears, fur, paws) takes the cake. Diet, growth, and habitat are explored, and a world map clearly highlights koalas' natural range. Vocabulary is defined on the page and in a glossary, with fact bubbles further enriching this charming introduction to Australia's cuddliest critter."
