Zoo Babies from Around the World is simply an awwww-inspiring book that will quickly become a favorite for the entire family! For the future veterinarian or zoologist on your gift list this season, ZooBorns! Zoo Babies from Around the World is the perfect stocking stuffer!

Based on the popular website, the book illustrates the connections between zoo births and conservation initiatives in the wild. Filled with interesting facts about exotic species like red pandas and emperor tamarins, ZooBorns! Zoo Babies from Around the World is both educational and entertaining. You will want to reach right through the pages of the book to pet these little ones!

For older children and adults, the gift of ZooBorns will also be appreciated. Featuring the same little newborns as the children’s picture book, ZooBorns describes each animal in further detail, as well as their natural habitat.

The best part? The charming critters inside the book represent fresh hope for endangered wildlife as 10% of all revenue goes directly to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Conservation Endowment Fund. This is one gift that you can feel good about giving!
