A delightful book for readers of all ages!  Sep 25, 2006
Over the years, I've come across several animal baby books. Some talk about the relationship between mother and baby, while others focus only on the babies. But until I came across this book, I'd never seen one quite like it.

Happy Birthday to Whooo? By Doris Fisher, is a delightful animal riddle book that includes birth announcements within the text! Each set of pages in the book focuses on a particular animal. On one side of the page, there are clever facts about the animal. On the other side of the page, there is a colorful birth announcement for the animal baby.

Fisher cleverly designed the text to provide interesting and often unknown facts about animals. For example, did you know that in the first few weeks of his or her life, a baby whale drinks, "...enough milk to gain 200 pounds every day?" The birth announcements are wittily constructed to allow children to guess the baby animal before looking at the pictures. For example, the announcement for the baby giraffe names the mother as, "Mrs. On Stilts," and gives a weight of 150 pounds and an initial height of 6 feet.

The illustrations in Happy Birthday to Whooo? by Lisa Downey, are lovely. The birth announcement pages are constructed so that the child doesn't have to guess "too" hard to figure out who the baby animal is, because various parts of the animals are sticking out behind the announcement. The pages are colorful but soothing, making this a lovely bedtime story as well as a great read-aloud story any time of the day or night.
 
Happy Birthday To Whooo?  Sep 20, 2006
Each page of this delightful book presents a riddle; can you guess what baby animal was just born? Everyone has a birthday, baby animals do too. Your child will enjoy guessing the baby animal from the clues in these announcements.

Proud parents of baby owls, lion cubs, and baby elephants include the weight, length, and number of babies in their announcement. When turning the page your child will see a colorful illustration of the described baby. Did he/she solve the riddle and guess the name of the baby animal?

Presenting The Newest Pea In Our Pod! Born: January 16, Weight 5,000 pounds, Length: 25 feet, Proud Mother: Mrs. O. Sean Blue. What is the name of this quite large baby animal? Turn the page and see a colorful illustration of a baby blue whale. Did you know he can drink enough milk to gain 200 pounds every day for the first few weeks?

Not all baby animals are delivered by the mother. The seahorse DAD gives birth to between 50 to 200 babies at a time, depending on the species. Baby kangaroos grow inside its mother's pouch; they all have the same name, Joey. By the time a baby giraffe is one year old, it stands 10 feet tall.

Parent and child will find this book entertaining as well as informative.
