Where Is Baby? written by Kathryn O. Galbraith, illustrated by John Butler

Adorable illustrations and a soothing text depict the many ways animal babies hide.
Babies love to hide. Beneath blankets, under tables, and behind chairs. And some babies like to hide in unexpected places. Like baby deer, who disappear in dappled spring sunlight. Or baby leopards, who scramble high in the African trees. Or baby elephants, who fade behind a forest of legs. But all hidden babies, no matter where they hide, can always be found by their loving parents.

My Thoughts

Where Is Baby?  That's a good a question. All babies are small which makes it hard to see them. Baby animals are camouflaged so they blend in to their surroundings. We can all guess some of the places a human baby might be hidden.  Do you know where baby animals might hide? The author and illustrator give us some perfect examples of these precious babies hidden in their surroundings. You and your children will want to, oh so gently, pick up these babies giving them a tender hug because they are so cute and the illustrations are so realistic. This book will peak your child's imagination and have them searching for the baby animal in the tall and short grasses in fields and pastures.  Just explain they are hidden to keep them safe but sometimes it can be a fun game.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book 5 baby monsters out of 5.
