This poetic picture book is now in a smaller size, perfect for on-the-go families!

 

Babies—whether pandas, puppies, or people—nurse. This bond is precious; this process, a natural art. Luminous illustrations and lyrical text will inspire conversations about caretaking in the natural world, while the bilingual format makes this charming book accessible to speakers of both Spanish and English.

 

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, bilingual text give children a glimpse into the worlds of 13 different mammal babies.

 

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.

As seen in Kirkus Reviews: This bilingual (English/Spanish) book showcases different baby mammals all sharing one common trait: They are all nursing from their mothers. In rhyming English text accompanied by its Spanish counterpart, readers are introduced to 13 different nursing mammals. The illustrations are done in watercolor, the inherent gentleness and warmth of the media making it an ideal complement to the text... Older children will enjoy the extra information that can be found about each animal at the end ... A sweet book...
