This companion to I Was Born a Baby is an irresistible read-aloud that delivers catchy rhymes and bold, silly art about where baby animals make their homes, from in the sea to in a tree.

I live in a bog. I live in a mound. My place is a burrow, hidden in the ground.Are you for SURE? I had NO clue!Mine’s a burrow! Mine’s a burrow! Mine’s a burrow, too!This rhyming read-aloud starts off with a porcupine who says, "I live in a tree trunk." Soon all the baby animals on the page begin eagerly sharing where they live! But when the groundhog and the platypus and the rabbit realize they live in the same dwelling as several other species, they say, "Are you for SURE? I had NO clue!" in a refrain kids will love repeating. The strong, catchy rhythm and sense of wonder and discovery about the animal kingdom, plus deadpan humor and wonderfully expressive art, make this an addictive repeat read for all ages.

About the Author

Meg Fleming has lived in houses, apartments, cottages, dorms . . . and sometimes even tents! Regardless of the roof over her head, her favorite place to be is at home with her husband and three kids (Laura, Andy, and Ben) and their dog, Opal, who melts like a stick of butter when she sleeps. Meg is the author of many picture books, including I Was Born a Baby, illustrated by Brandon James Scott, Wondering Around, illustrated by Richard Jones, and Rock That Vote, illustrated by Lucy Ruth Cummins. Visit Meg at megfleming.net.Brandon James Scott thinks a tree trunk would make a mighty fine home, but he hasn’t found one big enough to fit his family (or one with electricity, for that matter). By day, Brandon is a creative director working in animation (he was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on Justin Time), and by night he illustrates whimsical picture books, including I Was Born a Baby by Meg Fleming, Cow Says Meow by Kirsti Call, and Snow Falls by Kate Gardner. Brandon lives in Toronto with his wife, Jessica, and their two kids. Visit him at brandonjamesscott.com.
