I Heart Baby Animals


Whether you need to engage your kids on the road or while you’re basting, the Sierra Club’s Baby Animals Knowledge Cards ($9.95 online or check your local bookstore) are a marvelous source of entertainment across the ages.

This compact card deck includes 48 cards with color images of baby animals on one side, and historical information about the animal on the reverse. Babies and toddlers will be fascinated by the cute critters; the reverse text is great for older kids and adults alike (we have developed a deep affection for the evolutionarily stubborn Tapir…).

Cool tip: punch a hole through each card and tie the deck together with a ribbon or cord; it will save you from picking up dropped cards in the car, and make cleaning up around the house easier.
