Baby Australian Animals – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Each book opens with a page of vital statistics: the “baby name,” “number in litter,” “weight at birth,” “age of independence,” “adult weight,” and “life expectancy.” The books then go on to describe where the animals live and their predators and conclude with a “Fun Fact.” The photography is excellent. Sidebars on some pages include more facts or reinforce the text. The covers of the books have adorable pictures of the baby animals. If short, factual titles on specific Australian animals are needed, these will fill the bill.
