The Baby Factory

Li Söderberg & Katy Kimbell

How do animals reproduce? This beautifully illustrated non-fiction book portrays how different animals make and take care of their offspring. Some of the animals we get acquainted with in this book are…

The Rhino. Beware, poop attack! It’s best to keep out of the way, because when mum rhino is ready to mate it can be quite messy. She sprays and spurts her poop, so it ends up on trees, rocks and plants. The scent makes the males want to meet her.
The Rhea. A very involved dad! Here is dad rhea who does most of the work. When it’s time to mate he prepares a nice hole in the ground where he waits for the females to come and lay their eggs. He can incubate up to 70 eggs at once.
The Black Widow. Beware! The female spider is about 30 times larger than the male and has got her name because she kills her partner after mating. Sometimes she even eats him!

Do you find it tricky to talk to your child about the birds and the bees? Here you have an excellent way to introduce the subject at home. In The Baby Factory we get to meet fifteen animals, learn how they mate, what happens when they are pregnant and how they care for their newborns. The book features everything from penguins and sea horses to kangaroos and foxes.
