In his new book for children, Steve Bloom has focused his camera on fourteen species of wild animal families: bears, cheetahs, chimpanzees, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, hippos, lions, orangutans, pandas, penguins, rhinos, seals, and zebras.
Each family is featured over four pages, and the broad array of subjects is guaranteed to entice and amuse young readers. The photographs explore every facet of family life, from feeding and grooming to playing and hunting.
Entertaining and lively texts by children’s author David Henry Wilson accompany the entries and explain anything and everything of interest: why hippo families like to wallow in mud, what noises baby giraffes make, and why you should always look at a zebra’s ears.
Steve Bloom is a highly regarded natural-history photographer. He has published many titles with Thames & Hudson for both adults and children.
