All the mommies in this book are about to have babies. But how many little ones will they bring into this world?
A counting book as well as an introduction to how various baby animals are born. While I wasn't crazy about the choice of the word 'swimming' (as in, the piglets are swimming around in the mama's belly), I was pleased with the accuracy in pink hairless mice - although, some of the other babies are obviously not newborns. If you are ready to pop in with a discussion of how animals change in their first few weeks, you'll be fine. Split pages offer the fun of lift-the-flaps without the fragility. Fun, happy illustrations!
