Enormous Ears and Soft Brown Hair (Moose)

On a bright, spring morning, a newborn baby animal is about to begin a big adventure. He was born just an hour ago, but on long, wobbly legs, he unsteadily tries to stand. Who does this adorable little baby belong to? The little creature that is soon trotting after his large, gentle mother is a moose calf, and one day he will be a majestic bull with long, branch-like antlers. As readers turn the pages, they will discover the ways in which a moose calf is similar to and different from its parents. They will learn how the mother moose feeds and protects her baby, and they will see how the calf grows, changes, and gets ready for his adult life in the forest.
