Review: 'Where Is Baby?' by Kathryn O Galbraith

Where Is Baby? by Kathryn Galbraith, Illustrated by John Butler, 2013, Peachtree, $16.95, 27 pages. Category/Genre: animals. Cover: Terrific. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

Where Is Baby? is an exploration of different types of babies and the ways they hide. Among the kinds of babies mentioned are fawns, leopard cubs, prairie dog pups, wolf pups, bat pups, and elephant calves. 

John Butler's excellent artwork accompanies the text and gives readers even more to look at than the irresistible wild babies. In every picture there is wonderful detail, like butterflies and daisies, snails, spiders, and birds. 

At the back of the book is a section called 'More About Babies.' Here Galbraith explains more about each of the babies depicted in the book, including the proper word for each one. Baby ostriches, for example, are called either 'chicks' or 'whelps.'
