Praise For…

“If looking for cuteness, pick this one.”

Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2012

“Bleiman and Eastland introduce a new group of criminally cute baby zoo animals for each letter of the alphabet in a companion to 2010’s ZooBorns. Crisp, closeup photographs feature cheetahs, flamingos, marmosets, and sloths, among others, while lighthearted prose emphasizes the animals’ unique characteristics.”

Publishers Weekly, May 14, 2012

“All of these animal babies are extremely cuddly and appear in a full-color photo, one to a page…. The introduction explains that the book’s purpose is to teach the alphabet, but, more importantly, to show the need to study animals in zoos in order to understand them in the wild and to develop ways to protect endangered species…. The photographs are wonderful, the color and simple phrases fun.”
