Featuring playful illustrations and small vignettes of text, Animals and Their Families crosses continents and habitats to introduce children to nearly three dozen land-, sea-, and tree-dwelling animals including gazelles, penguins, owls, and more. Each spread is rich with information and will help a child explore the animal kingdom in many simple and accessible ways. A new creature is introduced in silhouette, while the facing page shows that same creature in its natural habitat, playing with, caring for, or teaching its young. All members of the animal family — male and female, adult and baby — are illustrated in warm colors and identified by the proper term. Small bits of text share the sound each animals makes, where it lives, and what it eats with young readers. Animals and Their Families is a must-have book for any young child curious about the animal kingdom.

Barbara Nascimbeni is an Italian-born illustrator who studied in Milan. She has done work for publishers internationally and her books are translated into many languages. She now divides her time between Hamburg, Germany and Sorède, France.
