After carrying her calf for 13 months, a mother South American tapir gives birth to her young on land. So begins the life of a baby South American tapir. In this coming-of-age introduction to these mammals, readers will learn that when born, baby South American tapirs resemble watermelons because of their shape and coloring. Children will also discover that the babies stay close to their mothers for more than a year before they are ready to head out on their own as adults. The colorful interior spreads and gorgeous photos of South American tapir babies are sure to delight emergent readers.
