Climb On Board

June 1, 2017

I’m sure you’ve seen the sign, “Baby on Board.” Of course, that means someone is carrying a baby.

There are many ways humans carry babies – in wraps, in slings, in carriers attached to your back or your front, in your arms …

Like humans, animals carry their babies, too. Baby on Board: How Animals Carry Their Young is written by Marianne Berkes and illustrated by Cathy Morrison, Dawn Publications.

Animals

This is a perfect show-and-tell book for children who want to learn how a variety of animals carry their young. There are two-page spreads throughout the book, and Marianne Berkes cleverly introduces each animal with two lines of rhyming text followed by a short paragraph of factual information. Cathy Morrison’s illustrations are detailed and done in vibrant colors that invite readers to reach out and touch them. The back matter consists of a match game, read aloud suggestions, and an assortment of resources for parents and teachers to use, including math, science, and engineering activities which make Baby on Board ideal for the STEM curriculum.

If your kids love animals, climb on board for some fun and learning with this book!
