With beautiful illustrations and inventive text, this fascinating introduction to the world of mammals reveals how fourteen mammal babies travel the path from helpless infants to self-sufficient adults. Ages 8-12. Aligns with the Common Core. NSTA Recommends. “As engaging visually as it is verbally!”-Carnegie Academy for Science education
