We made it, folks! TGIF!
So guess what?
It turns out I have actual psychic powers!
Remember that baby horse I said could be born on April 25?
Well, just minutes after midnight (around 12:23 AM) it actually was!
Look how beautiful! – a brand new filly (and for those of you who weren’t raised in a barn, that means a girl 🙂 )
Isn’t she just the cutest thing ever???!!! 🙂
Also big, strong, healthy, and full of beans! – a regular little firecracker sure to keep us (and her mama) on our toes! 🙂
Just wanted to let you know, since I promised I would 🙂
Now then, onto my Perfect Picture Book! In light of springtime and the new baby in our barn, I thought what better than a book about baby animals?

Written By: Marfe Ferguson Delano

National Geographic Children’s Books, July 2015, nonfiction
Suitable For Ages: 3-7

Some babies snuggle on snowy sheets of ice.”
Brief Synopsis: A look at a day in the life of lots of baby animals – how they move, eat, bathe and sleep, what they’re called, and where they live.
Links To Resources: The book itself is a resource, full of information and gorgeous photographs; make a list of baby animals who live near you (in your yard, or a nearby park); draw a picture of a baby animal; discuss how baby people are like baby animals and how they’re different.
Why I Like This Book: The text is simple, interesting, and informative, sure to engage young animal lovers, but it’s the photographs that really sell the book to me 🙂 What’s not to love about gorgeous pictures of adorable baby animals? 🙂
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂
