One thought on “My First Day

  1. Dolly

    This is an entertaining book that examines the first hours days of various animals lives Each page offers a different animal and shows how the abilities, levels of maternal care, and environment in which the animal is born varies greatly throughout nature The narrative is short and is appropriate for children of all ages And the multi media illustrations are just as wonderful as we ve come to expect from books by Steve Jenkins And we all learned about a few animals we d never heard of before.We [...]

    Love this idea It s really fun and interesting to see how various animal babies spend their first day From the baby giraffe who drops five feet to the ground at birth, to the Darwin frog who emerges from its father s mouth, to the wildebeest ready to run after its parents in the ever moving herd, they arrive in many ways and some are ready for life outside the womb or egg than others Humans might identify with the Siberian tiger or polar bear cubs, snuggled up with mama I knew about many of th [...]

    This may be my favorite of Jenkins works, so far I liked the subject, especially as my new niece was just born a few days ago The illustrations were adorable Information simple and easy to follow for a younger audience More information in the back for those who wish for A great lap read with a little one Good read alone for those interested in animals.

    Anytime I see a new Steve Jenkins picture book, I immediately place a hold on it at the library Why Well, his books are educational, interesting, and include great art My First Day doesn t have the wow factor that The Beetle Book and Actual Size did There are no big fold out pages, no whoa, the bug is THAT BIG comments The art is great, with Jenkins signature realistic collage style, but nothing really inspires awe Still, there are a lot of cool facts that I learned about animals first day out i [...]

  5. Jennifer (JenIsNotaBookSnob)

    This was very good, appropriate for younger readers It s not as much fun as Jenkin sHow to Swallow a pigbut also not as long or potentially scary The baby animals are mostly cute and there s a wide diversity in how equipped they are for their first days This one is not as wordy as some of his other ones My 6 year old daughter enjoyed it quite a bit, but it was a pretty quick read for her.

  6. Barbara

    Every time I think that Steve Jenkins has run out of ideas for his informative nonfiction books, he surprises me But this title provides excellent evidence that he continues to draw inspiration from the ever fascinating world around him Using his trademark torn and cut paper collage illustrations, he depicts various newborn animals, including a kiwi, a blue wildebeast, and Darwin s frog, among others After discussing what human babies can do on the day they are born, the text, written by Jenkins [...]

  7. Jenny

    We love Steve Jenkins and Robin Page at our house Every time I see their names on a book, I know it will be a hitd this was no different I love that they used a combination of very familiar animals zebra, giraffe, polar bear and lesser known animals parent bug, megapodes, muntjac, and Darwin s frog The focus of describing their first day of life leads to great detail Paired with additional nonfiction texts, students could write compare contrast essays about how babies spend their first day of li [...]

  8. Samantha

    What a cool concept for a book The author introduces a variety of animals and discusses what babies of each species introduced does on the day of its birth Torn and cut paper collage artwork brings each animal to life in an almost photo realistic way Text winds around illustrations, is simple yet informative, and makes for a good read aloud At the end of the book, information is given on each animal accompanied by a small picture to refresh readers memories A GREAT read from an ever impressive [...]

  9. Linda

    Wonderful comparison of baby animals and the things they can or cannot do when they are first born I learned something a rare deer from China that is omnivorous and eats small mammals Wow And a bug actually called the Parent Bug At the back of the book, little vignettes of each animal satisfy the reader s curiosity Very well done.

  10. Natalie

    Highly interesting facts pair with paper collage to highlight the first few hours of the lives of a variety of extra cute newborn animals Everyone is familiar with giraffes but did you know that at birth they fall out of their mother from about 5 feet in the air There are also less common varieties such as the muntjac, a rare deer from Southeast China that only grows to 18 inches tall.

  11. Alice

    4.25 starsIt is official Steven Jenkins and his wife Robin Page are the Royalty of non fiction narrative I love the pictures love What I also like is that it teaches ME about new animals The Sifaka and megapodes and muntijac Just fun to read and a feast for the eyes I love the cut out technique

  12. Kristen

    This is the kind of nonfiction you can easily work into your read aloud rotation Always love the cut and torn paper collages.

  13. Victoria Bottoms

    My First Day tells readers about what baby animals do on their first days It tells what various baby experience during their first day on this Earth I like this book because it introduces readers to animals that they may not be familiar with I also like it because it shows students how different the first days can be for the varying animals The book introduces animals such as sifakas, emperor penguins, capybaras, Darwin s frogs, and musk ox I would use this lesson in a younger grades classroom d [...]

  14. Josie

    This book is about the first days of all different kinds of animals It is different for all of them, some don t do much at all and need a lot of help from their parents, and some are independent and have a lot to do by their first day of life.The media used here seems to be watercolor.I would teach this book reading it aloud and maybe act out the animals or ask the students to make the sound the animal makes.

  15. Cinthya Murguia

    This is such a cute book to read to children that want to learn about animals as babies The book does a great job at introducing each animals and showing how the first day of life is for the animal The author chooses to write about different animals and it contains fun facts about them, some of which surprised me at times This book is very informational and it even has a glossary in the back that explains each animal mentioned in the book I loved reading this book It was very entertaining

  16. Amanda

    Very educational book about how different animals behave on the day they are born While some are completely helpless and need their mother s attentions, others can immediately swim run eat on their own I liked that the book chose animals that are less well known The illustrations were interesting reminded me of ripped paper.

  17. Amy Lafleur

    Steve Jenkins shows what baby animals do on their first day Animals include a mix of types of animals such as a kiwi, Siberian tiger wood duck, giraffe, emperor penguin, sea otter, and Darwin s frog, among others There s not a lot of text but one can learn a lot from this book There s also further information about the animals, their size, and habitat in the back of the book.

  18. Memory Kopp

    This is yet another great book by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page depicting some fun and interesting animals and what they do on their first day of life The fun free form of words on each page detailing the first day of life for these cute animals make it fun for young readers to learn An example of this is learning that a baby giraffe falls five feet to the ground when it comes out on its first day but doesn t get hurt Some of the animals should be familiar to young readers like the tiger, giraffe [...]

  19. Emily Stueven

    This is a charmingly illustrated and informative book for small children The first days of the young of a variety of animals mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and insects but no fish are represented The babies detail their beginnings in first person so to speak , and often do so quite poignantly and beautifully For instance, the sea otter baby explains On my first day, my mother held me close so I wouldn t drift off to sea I dozed on her belly while she floated in the waves There s certainly [...]

    My first day starts off with the first day a new born baby was born Then, it goes on to tell the first day of various new born animals the day they were born Some animals include turtles, penguins, giraffes, bunnies, and many Each new born animal and human are born differently and have different duties the instant they were born For example, a human baby is very dependent of their mother and father when they are born they are incapable of doing most tasks when they are born For some animals, th [...]

  22. Ashli Stroyan

    My First Day is a book about many different types of animals and what their first day on earth is like This is a very informative book and is set on educating its readers about how different animals are cared for when they are born and what type of environment they are born in Since this is not an actual story with a plot, and characters, it is not necessarily required for the illustrations to tell a story The illustrations were very vibrant and did a great job of showing the animals and what th [...]

  23. Nikole Rettman

    This is a nonfiction book The main day of life is distinctive for each creature Human infants don t do much by any means, yet a few creatures get straight down to business The Caldecott Honor winning group Steve Jenkins and Robin Page apply their extensive abilities to uncovering how twenty two distinct species, from the head penguin to the Siberian tiger, adjust to that traumatic initial couple of hours of life, with or without parental help Jenkins clearly brilliant cut paper outlines are eye [...]

    On our first day on Earth, humans can t do much than cry, drink, and sleep But some other living things can do some pretty awesome things on their first day, like swim, run, and fly This picture book features several baby animals, some alongside their parents, telling what they are able to do on their first day I was expecting nothing less than amazing from Steve Jenkins paper collages, and he delivers, as always Beyond that what I really appreciated was the introduction to some animals unfamil [...]

    Virginia Readers ChoiceThis early elementary book describes what 23 different animals do on their first day of their lives This would be great to use to teach animal science information to kids Students could also research what other animals do on the first days of their lives Or, students could interview their parents and write about what happened on the first day of their lives They could then compare contrast that to an animal from the book.Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K 12, 2 [...]
