Champion Sleeper!
by Tim Young

strikes him, and his loving family
would not have it any other way…

PBS Kids Go!



Whether we're known as cubs, tadpoles, kittens, grubs, pups, fawns, newts or calves, we're all kids at some point in our lives.

We start small in every way, then usually grow bigger and learn more.  Then we become adults and can usually care for ourselves without so much help from our parents.

Did you know that humans are the slowest of all mammals to reach independence?   Did you know that giraffes can stand up and walk just a few hours after they're born?   Not so for us humans.  It's not that we're any less intelligent than giraffes, but that's just how we're all made.

We can learn alot from our animal friends, and we can also learn from the ones who aren't so friendly!
