Baby Animals

My First Day by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page
My First Day by Steve Jenkins & Robin Page is an array of lovely new life.  Written by both Jenkins and Page, this tells what the first day of life is like for 22 different animals.  The informational text shares real information with eye appeal.

The illustrations are torn - and cut- paper collage.  I love the textures in the pictures and the variety of animals.  I also appreciate it when an artist shares how they create their pictures.  Steve Jenkins shows how he makes a book on his website.

This book would go well with a Storytime on babies or animals, and I'd use it with Preschool to 2nd graders.
