Summary

They're soft, fluffy, cuddly, and cute--and they all live in the freezing cold. Time to meet the snow babies! From roly-poly polar bear cubs happy at play to seal pups snuggling and penguin chicks waddling, there's nothing more adorable than these wintry animals. Toddlers will love Laura Ellen Anderson's bold pictures and wild creatures.


Author Notes

Laura Ellen Anderson graduated from University College Falmouth (England) in 2010, and since then she has been working with a number of publishers in the UK and the US. Her successful collaboration with Boxer Books has resulted in five adorable board books: Kittens and Puppies both published in 2014, and Bunnies and Chicks (upcoming for Spring 2015). Laura is also the creator of the regular comic strip "Evil Emperor Penguin," a weekly story comic for kids and adults alike.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Twelve sets of baby animals romp through their wintry environs in this cheery board book. Anderson's captionlike sentences introduce the animals by name, as well as the terms for their young: "Reindeer fawns leap" over a fallen log in a forest lit with golden sunlight that seems to herald spring's arrival. Elsewhere, "Husky puppies race in the snow," seal pups snuggle under a purple night sky, and "baby panda cubs snooze" amid snow-dusted bamboo shoots. Anderson's eminently cuddly cartoons give the book a coziness that belies its chilly settings. Up to age 3. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Kirkus Review

What baby animals live in the snow? Cold-weather offspring from the North and South poles and many places in between come to life in this simple but appealing British import for the very young. Sprinkled with alliteration ("Arctic hare baby bunnies bounce" and "Baby beaver kits build"), the straightforward text introduces toddlers to the sounds and movements of the various animal babies (polar bears, reindeer, arctic foxes, harp seals and penguins, to name a few) with brief, one-sentence descriptions. The fluffy and mildly mischievous cartoon creatures are rendered in a wintry palette and sport gentle, anthropomorphized smiles; they virtually vibrate with friendliness from each two-page spread. Though perhaps verging on overly sweet, the general effect here is pleasant and warm, and toddlers will enjoy identifying the animals as well as learning a tiny bit about the ways they move. There is no systematic effort to convey scientific language ("bunnies" instead of "leverets," for instance) or to represent family groups, so the emphasis is very much on fun rather than information. Cute. (Picture book. 1-3) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
