This non-fiction book is full of facts and pictures about a variety of different baby animals. It is divided into two sections, Babies on the Farm, and Babies in the Wild. The facts are simple to understand but still provide a lot of information. My granddaughter enjoyed this book as most of the animals were familiar to her. She liked the little question at the end of each two-page spread. My grandson (age 5) also enjoyed learning some new information, but was not as interested as the 2.5 year old. The illustrations were photographs which I always like with non-fiction books, but they all has an added illustration/cartoon like section as well. I can see this book being enjoyed as part of a family library, used in a classroom when learning about types of animals as well as a beginning reader enjoying this story for its simple text, yet informative nature. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.

Although I could see the potential in this text, I was not able to sustain my attention and finish the narrative.

My niece and nephew love for me to read to them, but I'm pretty sure they prefer books that have nice illustrations? This book has cute baby animals, so you really can't go wrong with this selection.

Wow!  What an extremely informative book.  This non-fiction book is full of facts and pictures about a variety of different baby animals.  The facts are simple to understand but still provide a wealth of knowledge. 
Age wise, I find this book to be appropriate for a wide variety of age levels.  PreK to 2nd will get a kick out of the cute pictures.  3rd and 4th graders will be able to read this book to gain information about an animal they are researching or interested in.  The writing is informative enough, but not overwhelming to the reader.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

Good introduction to both domestic and exotic animals. It was helpful in a literacy unit about nonfiction. Thank you for making it available!

This is a very cute and informative book.  My daughter is very interested in animals at the moment and I think she'll love pointing at the pictures and learning their names.

The book is also quite informative, so parents have interesting things to read to the kids while looking at the cute pictures.  It also has cute cartoon versions of the animals accompanied by questions for the kids.  I think this book can be interesting for a large age-group.

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

This new edition to the series "Mack's World of Wonder" will have kids focused on the beautiful pictures and added playful illustrations.  The book is divided into two sections:  one highlighting farm animals and the other baby animals in the wild. 
  
What child wouldn't want the answer to...


"What does a newborn sheep look like? Can a baby duck swim? 
Where does a baby bear like to play? What color is a baby zebra’s stripes? 
Is a baby rhinoceros born with a horn?"  (which makes every human mother cringe) 

The book documents what that particular baby animal is called, how it feeds and the natural environment it lives in.  To go deeper beyond the visual cuteness the author has added interesting facts about the animal and at the bottom of the page an illustrated quiz activity that will engage and encourage kids to listen intently and look carefully at the information the author has provided for each distinct animal.  This Dutch import will have kids going back again and again to learn more about these adorable little baby creatures.  I highly recommend this book.

Split into two parts—farm and wild—this book features photos and some silly stick drawings of. . . yeah, you guessed it. The title does not lie!
There’s some really simple quizzes that show this is for the preschool set. Every little article starts with what the baby version of the animal is called, and how it feeds. There’s a big diversity of animals, but I was disappointed not to see a whale or dolphin. Guess they’re not cute enough.
3.5 pushed up to 4/5

The pictures are cute enough on their own and are perfect for any animal lover. However, there’s the added touch of information out the individual animals.

An adorable, informative book about baby animals on the farm and in the wild with stunning pictures and illustrations perfectly suitable for kindergarten kids.
In Mack’s World of Wonder. The Cutest Baby Animals, the narrative follows a strict routine; first, the readers are introduced to what a baby animal is called, and then there is information about the respective baby’s first few weeks of life after birth along with stunning pictures and cute hand drawings. The author, at times, throws in a bit of fun information about the baby animals that will be sure to engage the young readers; the fact how the piglets love to roll in the mud and how mud is good for their skin. The book is divided into two parts; the first half is ...Full review coming soon The Prairies Book Review (upcoming online review magazine)

I totally will use this one on my classes in elementary school with my pupils and I already see myself giving this book as a gift to be awesome aunt

I really enjoyed the story in this book much more than in Mr. Van Gageldonk's other book. The book is informative and fun to read and the smaller usage of his hand-drawn pictures makes it much more fun and whimsical and looking so much less unprofessional. There were some issues with the pictures looking like they didn't go into the book properly (they are choppy and layered strangely), so how hopefully that can be fixed before publishing.

MACK'S WORLD OF WONDER: THE CUTEST BABY ANIMALS is a great book for parents and children alike.  It shows not only beautiful photographs but also drawings of various baby animals, with a little information on each of the babies, and little parts to engage children (for example, the piglet's information is about how/why they like mud so much, and then there's a little drawing of more piglets with a "How many piglets can you count?" so you can have a child count all the piglets on the page.  It's divided up by where the baby animals live.  Really cute book.

Beautifully colored pictures of baby animals in this book will encourage your child to look at this book. While having fun your child won't even realize they are learning they will just be enjoying themselves. There are two categories in this book, Baby Animals on the Farm and Baby Animals in the Wild. This book teaches children in easy to understand words about animals animals from babyhood with what they enjoy eating,where they live and how the mother takes care of them. My daughter and I enjoyed reading this together.

A bunch of really freaking cute pictures of baby animals with their parents, what more could you want!?  Each set of pages also has a short section of facts about the featured animal, and little illustrated puzzles to help with learning things like colors or counting or identifying certain things or behaviors.  Lovely book for any kid who likes animals.
