Booklist - 01/01/2018 “My parents both take care of me,” chirps a fluffy tundra swan cygnet. On the opposite page, a raccoon kit curls up with his mom and says, “I’ve never met my dad.” In bite-size paragraphs, baby animals discuss their families, often in ways that mimic human families. “Someone else gave birth to me,” says an adopted baby rhesus macaque, while a harbor seal’s mother works all day hunting for food. Nontraditional families are represented—in a nod to And Tango Makes Three (2005), a chinstrap penguin chick proudly announces, “Two dads are what I’ve got!” There’s some personification here, but this is less a scientific glance at the animal kingdom and more a celebration of all kinds of families. Many of the animals use non-English words to describe their parents: the South African white rhino grazes with his amai and baba, while the Laysan albatross nests with her two makuahines, the Hawaiian term for mother. Muted digital illustrations offer a glimpse into a wide range of habitats, while a final spread shows several diverse human families. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
