How Animals BondBook - 2008
Parents and their young have unique ways of bonding, especially in the animal kingdom. A baby kangaroo nestles in its mother's pouch, while a mama alligator carries her baby gently in her mouth. Polar bears cuddle, and penguin parents take turns warming their chicks in the Antarctic winter. Just like people, animals kiss, rub noses, and snuggle.
Through endearing pictures and a lyrical text, Kimiko Kajikawa explores the parent-child bonds of animals large and small.
