About The Book

Come meet babies across the animal kingdom and learn their adorable names in this bouncy, rhyming picture book celebration of how—no matter what species—everyone grows!

Puffins have pufflings, porcupines have porcupettes, and echidnas have…puggles?! All these babies start out little, and then, just like humans, they grow and grow and grow. Featuring dozens of different animals, all adorably illustrated by Stephanie Laberis, this book is a vibrant celebration of little ones, growing, and love.
