How little animals grow up

Peter Wohlleben (Written by), Diana Kohne (Illustrated by)

All animals grow differently: This is how the forest children grow up!

On a walk through the forest, little wild boar girl Fritzi notices something exciting: Fritzi's mum looks very different to her! Fritzi has stripes, her mum doesn't and mum's fur is also much darker. Is it the same for other animals? Do they also change when they grow up? Fritzi has to find out and sets off full of curiosity. On her adventure, she realises that there are many other baby animals that look completely different from their parents: the baby titmouse is almost naked, the fawn has spots and butterflies used to be caterpillars. Fritzi is amazed: so many baby animals that change! When the little wild boar girl returns home, she has a lot to tell her mum.

How do little animals grow up? - Come with Fritzi the wild boar on an exciting journey of discovery into the world of baby animals.

  • A sweetly illustrated cardboard picture book for little ones to discover and marvel at. Scientifically sound and wonderfully told, with lots of details.
  • The cute animal stories of Fritzi the wild boar will make you want to visit the forest.
  • A lovely read-aloud book for little forest explorers, nature lovers

Peter Wohlleben knows what he is writing about: He himself manages an ecologically orientated forestry business in the Eifel and passes on his knowledge not only in guided forest tours, but also in lovingly designed picture books suitable for children. The story of Fritzi Wildschwein is the perfect children's book for children aged 2 and over and a great introduction to the world of the forest.
