Adorable illustrations and a soothing text depict the many ways animal babies hide.

Babies love to hide - beneath blankets, under tables, and behind chairs. And some babies are found in unexpected places. Like baby deer, who disappear in dappled spring sunlight. Or baby leopards, who scramble high in the African trees. Or baby elephants, who fade behind a forest of legs. But all babies, no matter where they are, can always be found - by their loving parents.

“Though limited to only a short sentence on most pages, the language is quietly poetic, with audience-appropriate descriptive vocabulary. The acrylic-and-colored-pencil illustrations depict cuddly baby animals up close, allowing readers to see their faces as well as their textures and colorations in great detail.” ―School Library Journal

“Sweet, simple introduction to animal babies...the language is quietly poetic, with audience-appropriate descriptive vocabulary. The acrylic-and-colored-pencil illustrations depict cuddly baby animals up close, allowing readers to see their faces as well as their textures and colorations in great detail.” ―Kirkus

“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.” ―Blue Owl Reviews

“A heartwarming, read-aloud story perfect for sharing with the littlest of little ones, just before bedtime.” ―Midwest Book Review
