Spring is the season of babies in the animal world. We told you about our squirrel friend Bird having babies. Our human friend Evelyne saw a family of skunks in her back yard this week. Our bird friends are sitting on eggs in their nests. Have you seen any animal babies yet?
Why are so many animal babies born in the spring? Food is plentiful in the spring. Just look around and see all the new leaves and flowers coming out!
The days are warmer in the spring, so the babies do not get too cold.
Babies born now will have all spring, summer, and fall to grow big and strong before another winter comes.
Look around your place. Do you see any animal babies? Look in water areas for tadpoles. Look in trees for bird and squirrel nests. Look for butterflies and moths.
