About This Book
In this knockout book of animal photographs, perfect for the youngest animal lover, you'll discover all sorts of things. Did you know that orangutans are ticklish? Yes, they are—just like you and me. But be careful if you ever see a hippo yawning. It doesn't mean he's sleepy—it means he wants to fight.

The gorgeous up-close pictures and fascinating facts are complemented by behind-the-scenes peeks at how animal photographs are taken. (For instance, photographer Steve Grubman once had to lull a cow to sleep with soft music!) Animal lovers, young scientists, and budding photographers will all adore this beautiful nonfiction book.

    The First Rule of Little Brothers
    HE WANTS TO FOLLOWyou, play with you, act like you, do what you do, and be wherever you are. It’s like he’s trying to become you! Hey, wait—is that the plan? If they’re big, if they’re little, if they’re in the middle, all siblings will recognize the dynamics of this affectionate silly-smart take on the joys, trials, and surprises of being linked to someone who will share their growing up like no one else. Parents will appreciate how the “rule” is conveyed through humor and silly sibling shenanigans in this warmhearted and lively tale. A great book for families to share.
