In this book, photographed at the Wolong Nature Reserve in China, sixteen baby pandas are shown playing, eating, napping, and being cuddled by their panda mothers and their human caretakers. Even though a panda can be seen in some zoos, all pandas belong to China and are on loan to the zoos. This is a delightful book of photographs and tells a perfectly wonderful story of the life of young pandas. My favorite photo was of the sixteen pandas napping.
