(Even though the narrator's voice in this TV program is on the irritating side) - Whether you're a mature adult, or a curious child - In this "Family Time" nature-DVD from Animal Atlas - You are sure to enjoy seeing and learning all about some of the cutest baby animals who exist on the face of this planet.

Whether they hoot, howl, neigh, bark, or hiss - When it comes to the "cuteness-factor" of baby animals, believe me, (big or small) they rate as the most irresistibly adorable critters on the entire face of this planet.

In this educational, 3-episode nature-documentary from TV's "Animal Atlas" - The viewer meets all sorts of baby animals (bears, dogs, elephants, reptiles, etc,. etc.). And here (focusing in on a number of wildlife families) we learn many noteworthy facts about the specific roles of the adults in this type of setting.

Of course, it really shouldn't come as any surprise to realize that, time and again, it's the adult female who bears most of the responsibility when it comes to bringing up the young - Though, in many cases, the much-stronger male can certainly be counted on to offer protection should any predators pose a threat to the family.

Anyway - Even though these nature programs may be geared to educating youngsters, they can still be enjoyed and valued by an adult audience, as well.
