The family life of familiar animals—such as dogs, cats, rabbits, ducks, squirrels and more—is the focal point of this title. How are baby animals born? How do their parents take care of them? What all do young animals need to learn? Do baby animals sleep at night, too? Touching scenes with lots of moveable flaps help children draw connections with their own families and experiences, and discover what they have in common with young animals.

At school she began to write texts for beginners, and she has been writing children's books since 1987. Frauke Nahrgang watches children very carefully and is interested in how they make contact, talk and communicate with each other. She transfers these observations strikingly into the stories in her picture books.
