They are as cute as can be and these animal babies live in zoos all around the world. You'll meet Beco, an Asian elephant, Radar Ears, a fennee fox, and Menari, a Sumatran orangutan.

Other zoo babies featured with full page color photos include a tawny frogmouth (an owl, I think!), a spotted hyena pup, a funny looking little aardvark, an ocelot, and an adorable pair of Bengal tiger cubs. In all you'll find over 16 little zoo critters featured here.

Given how "thin" some board books can be, this volume has a lot of pages, which means not only are you acquiring quite a collection of exotic animals but you are also getting a lot of "bang" for your buck. Also, at the back of the book you'll find a listing of the zoos and animals parks that provide a home for these newborns.

"Zoo Borns!" will delight toddlers and also illustrates that there are plenty of cute and cuddly little ones in the animal world.
