While most animal species produce large numbers of offspring and leave them to fend for themselves, others invest time, resources and effort in bringing up their offspring. This is of course the case for humans, most other mammals and birds. However, among crocodiles, toads, frogs, fish, insects and even spiders, some parents also show an attachment that sometimes requires sacrifice.

After reading this book, you will see the animals that surround us in a different light as many of them also share the joys and sorrows of the hard job of parenting.
