All of them are mammals . . . so they all like to nurse Did you know that Quokkas are thought to be the world's friendliest animal? That some Kangaroos actually live in trees? That Rock Hyraxes are known to sing songs? These 3 are among the 12 amazing animals that adults and children can learn about and welcome as new friends in this new book.

Previous bestselling books in this series include: Mama's Leche, We Like to Nurse, and We Like to Nurse, Too. These books offer encouragement in the womanly art of breastfeeding and stress the naturalness of this human process while drawing attention to our kinship with other mammals.

Since many mothers have an older child tucked in at their sides while nursing their younger one, they have the challenge of integrating a new member of the family into an existing system. This book will engage the interest and attention of children of all ages. Because these unusual animals are so engaging and fascinating, older children can easily be included in the intimacy between mother and infant. Additional information about these animals is included in a section in the back pages of this book and promises to enhance the learning experience of older children. Adults too will find these animals and their habits curious if not irresistible. Several of these animals are endangered species. . . one more reason to reinforce their unique qualities to children. In the process of research, the author and her granddaughter (co-author Ashe Parker) were overjoyed to discover countless other little-known facts about these extraordinary mammals, including that some are actually hatched out of eggs or have scales instead of fur The author says, "Some of these critters can carry on conversations with complex vocabularies that allow them to 'talk' to each other--or 'sing' using whistles, barks, growls and chirps " A necessary addition to school and public library collections, and a beautiful gift for pregnant women.
