welcome back former arkansas governor mike huckabee set to make a life changing announcement at the beginning of next month for 2016. >> will he be the next g.o.p. hopeful to officially throw his hat into the ring? >> forget may 5th for that announcement. he joins us now. we want an answer now. >> good morning governor, how are you? >> well, good morning, i'm doing great. it's great being back with you guys i miss seeing you on saturdays as i used to regularly do. beautiful day in new hampshire and delighted to be here. >> what is the mood right now in new hampshire and, of
3:45 am
course ahead of this may 5th announcement? we don't know yet whether or not you are going to run. what are you doing up there? >> well, right now the mood in new hampshire is sleepy. i think i'm one of about six people who are awake but it will get busy here because there is a big conference first in the nation leadership conference that's going on and i think there is like 173 people who are potentially running for president who will be speaking today. and i will be on that list. >> governor we're going to be talking a lot about you leading up to may 5th. but give us a preview of what may 5th is going to be like. hope arkansas your hometown. childhood home still stands. why hope, arkansas? >> it's not just by birthplace but it's that small town like so many americans have grown up in that really shaped my life my values my perspective. it's also that place where i grew up never thinking that i would see a president in person, never thought i would meet a governor. when i was 8 years old my
3:46 am
dad took me down to hear the governor of arkansas make a speech dedicating a lake. son you may live your whole life and you may never get to meet a governor in person. it's symbolic to me of what america is about. this great country where a kid growing up in a little ren house could have big dreams and live those dreams. there it are a lot of americans who are about to give up on those dreams because it's hard to break out these days if you are starting at the bottom. we have got to change that so, you know, i'm not making the nowment today, i will tell you whether or not i will run on may the 5th. i would certainly encourage to you come to hope arkansas may the 5th. details about tickets and all that stuff will be on my web site at mike huckabee.com. >> charles krauthammer had nice things to say about you last night on "special report." you are different from others in this race because you are not a, quote corporate republican. do you think that's true and if so what does that mean?
3:47 am
>> well, i'm not a corporatist in the sense that i don't believe that the whole country ought to just follow allegiance to corporations. let me be clear i am not against corporations. i'm a big business, small business, all business kind of guy. business ought to all play by the same rules. one of the things that i do fear is we get to the place where sometimes the republican party almost just surrenders to whatever the corporate interests are. i don't think that's smart. for example, if we let corporations engage with multinational trade agreements in which the other countries are cheating, but the u.s. company doesn't mind because it's pot ofable doing it. the government needs to step in and say wait a minute americans are losing jobs. americans are losing the ability to make products. and you don't surrender to the chinese or to the south koreans or japanese because somebody is making bucks if you are doing that over the backs of americans there isinging wrong with that.
3:48 am
>> 5 million people out of work after nafta past. >> 2016 here is how the g.o.p. nominees among republican primaries shakes out in the new fox news poll. scott walker at the top 15%. jeb bush 12%. you are down there at 10%. as you mention 1' 3 potential people running for president. i want to go off something charles krauthammer said last night you are not a corporate republican. if mike huckabee goes after the evangelical vote and that's all he does, he is not going to go anywhere. but you have changed since 2008 and with a more populist tone, do you agree with charles or disagree? >> well, i think the narrative on me in 2008 was not exactly accurate where people thought that the only support i had was evangelical vote. frankly, the fact is if all of the evangelicals had really coalesced around me i would have probably maybe been the nominee but i certainly would have won more states than even the 8
3:49 am
or 9 states i would have won coming in second to mccain. the fact is a lot of my support came from blue collar working class people who felt this government had been completely dismight have been and even unaware of their struttle they were struggles they were having. wage stagnation. the bottom of the 990% of the american force work has not really had a wage increase in 40 years. it's been stagnant. that's got to change. >> governor mike huckabee live from new hampshire. have fun up there it's great to see you this morning. >> great to see you guys. all the best. >> thanks, glorch tell those yard trimmers in the background the governor is speaking. >> what was that? i thought that was an air boat or something. >> the wright brothers were flying in overhead. >> coming up on "fox & friends," they came here illegally now it's costing you big time to deport them. that's because they are flying home on empty charter flights. >> and how long should you wait before having a second child? some experts are telling
3:50 am
parents to slow down. is that good advice? who are these experts anyway? we'll tell you. ♪ oh baby, ♪ here i am signed, sealed, delivered ♪ i'm yours. am, baby ♪ signed, sealed delivered ♪ i'm yours. i trust dulcolax tablets. i take dulcolax for dependable overnight relief and in the morning i am back to myself dulcolax, designed for dependable relief

new advice from the cdc. if you want to have babies slow down. two and a half years. short gaps from a risk on your family's future. >> the author of the birth order book joins us now. great to see you this
3:54 am
morning. why is the government weighing in on something this personal and are they right? >> well, i don't know. the government sticks their nose in way too many areas. but the truth of the matter is the best spread between the births of children is about three to three and a half years. it gives that first born a running start to get established before they hear those little footsteps of the second born much the closer the kids are in birth the more competition between the children. first two children in any family are night and day different to begin with. >> is there any problem to w. that? can't that be an asset to positive development. corp. tuition weather it's academic, or trying to get the girl? >> let's get behind the toddler's eyes. he or she is two and a half years of age. she hears a new word. it's pregnancy. learns mommy is going to go away to the hospital and bring her home a special
3:55 am
present. one that she soon figures out she could have well done without. the thing comes home and the thing has its own room and thing gets gifts from grandparents and before long it just heightens the sibling rivalry. for the record the original title on the birth order book when it was bound with rubber bands and cardboard was able had it coming. the publisher said kevin, you can't have a title like able had it coming. >> pretty clever. i have a bunch of kids and closely spaced together more than the government would like. it seems like one of the messages it's not about you. you learn young to share resources and share resources from your parents and share affection. it's like living in a dorm. that's good, no? >> not necessarily a 5 year gap, for example, you start another family. you almost create what i call a function until first functional first born. i think what really helps is when that second born is
3:56 am
coming you talk to the first born and say, honey, listen this baby can't even walk. this baby can't even talk. this baby has to take this many naps a day. but you are a big girl or big boy. you will only take one nap a day. i will tell you competition is not great. the lehmans first two were 18 months apart and just for fun our fourth born we had at 42. our little surprise and shocker came along at 48. just do what the lehmans do in life will be cool. >> listen to the government on how many kids you should be having quickly. dr. kevin lehman always great to see you on "fox & friends." thank you so much. >> you are welcome with. i'm all for keeping the government out of everything, by the way. >> like so soviet union. >> decide the birth order of your kid. >> female ceo facing a firestorm america not ready for woman's. hormones make it dangerous to give the bomb. she may be running for president herself.

3:58 am
some people had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix or history of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm not worried about smoking my next cigarette. to me that feels great. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. there's only two of us... how much dirt can we manufacture? very little. more than you think.

normal 23-year-old kid with normal background and no criminal aspirations. he planned an attack on military base in texas he wanted to kill soldiers execution style. his backup plan was attacking a prison. he left the country about a year ago to train in syria. anna tucker, clayton, back to you guys. >> thanks, elizabeth. a lot of questions about this guy whether he was captureed too quickly. could very led us to a larger terror network in the united states. earlier on the show we spoke to tim clemente, he is a tactical expert. he thinks we caught him a little too early. take a listen. >> we probably puppet that network under ground if there was a network there. there is a possibility that we could learn from interviews and interrogations what that structure was around him. or what it might have been, i think it's always better, if it's possible and if it's not going to create greater danger for the public to
4:04 am
leave him out there. a lone individual like this there is no organization better in the world than the fbi at tracking people like this. surveying them and building a federal case around them. >> i don't know how i feel about that because on the one hand if they do reach out for material support or financial support or, you know, more training or something. that's valuable because you will have those communication lines to be able to track and hopefully find more terrorists and be able to stop or wanna be terrorists and stop more attacks. at the same time, you know, what if we miss something and they do get a bomb and innocent people are killed? >> that's a good question. there are two ways to approach interest problem. it is a problem americans going to fight terror groups abroad. >> spend more energy watching americans monitoring them or and he we are trying to do that or like stop the problem at its source by ceasing to let in people from countries where radical islam and terror are the norm like somalia. we moved hundreds of thousands of somalis into this country. i'm not sure why. no one asked our opinion of

4:06 am
>> it's not symbolic in any way. it's not been declared, you know, part of the caliphate on one hand or central to the future of iraq. what we want to get it back. i would much rather that ramadi fall it's not the end of a campaign should it fall. >> not symbolic in any way. >> he does say what he is more concerned about is an oil-rich central city of bagi. that's more what he is concerned about. the first navy seal that was killed in ramadi debbie lee, she is just totally shaken by this, listen. >> this is what she says she says i am shaking and tears are flowing down my cheeks as i watch the news and listen to the insensitive pain inflicting comments made by new regards to the fall of ramadi. my son and many others gave their future in ramadi. ramadi mattered to them. many military analysts says as go ramadi so goes iraq. you and this administration

[cheers and applause] >> hold on, hillary. one female ceo from texas says not so fast. >> a woman called cheryl rio a ceo of a marketing company from texas faced a ton of backlash this week saying voters would be be better off to leave the job of president to men because they are less more monthly. >> i know sitting across from a man you are going to be looked at a certain way. >> we are built differently. we do have different hormones and the world we live in i understand that there is equal rights and that's a wonderful thing and i support all of that. i don't support a woman being president. >> joining us now to respond someone who also knows a bit about running a her own business. former crowe of hewlett packard carlie fiorina.
4:18 am
thank you for being with us. >> good morning. >> between us girls here the hormones we have make us not qualified to be president according to this woman? what do you think? >> out of control. >> well, you know, sandy is obviously entitled to her opinion. but i think american history is littered with examples of men whose judgment was clouded by their hormones including in the oval office. so if we want to talk about hormones, i think men's hormones sometimes get the better of them. >> hilarious. hillary clinton has made the case that a woman should be president for historical reasons but also that women are naturally better leaders. they govern in a way that's different from the way men govern. do you think that's true? >> well look i think good leadership requires transparence and candor which hillary clinton has not displayed. i think it requires collaboration, which i don't think she has particularly displayed. i think it also requires a track record of accomplishment. honestly she doesn't have much.
4:19 am
while i certainly think a woman is woman of capable of being present and i will probably be running for president in a few short weeks, i also think that gender shouldn't be the basis upon which we make that decision. that's why if hillary clinton faces me on a general debate stage she won't be able to talk about being the first woman president. she won't be able to talk about the war on women. the only thing she'll be able to talk about is her track record, her accomplishments or lack thereof, her policies and plans, which have crushed the middle class and her own track record of a lack of candor and transparency. whether it was email gate or benghazi. >> so you just made news there. >> yeah, probably running for president. >> probably running for president in a few weeks to make that announcement. do you have a date set when you will make that announcement? >> well, you know, we're probably going to do something late april first part of may. so we're coming up on a formal decision and announcement pretty soon here. >> and will you run on the historical fact of a woman should be president? it's time for a woman to be president or more on your record and your leadership?
4:20 am
>> well i'm going to run on the fact that america is at a pivotal point. america is at a point where we need to restore possibilities for all americans. where we have a government that is so big so powerful so costly so complex and so corrupt that only the big, the powerful, the wealthy and well-connected are making it now. and, yes, i will run on my track record having started as a secretary and become a chief executive. having led major charities in this country. having traveled all over the world and met with the most of the world leaders on the stage today. i think i understand the economy. i think i understand the world and who is in it. i understand what it takes to change bureaucracies. i understand technology which is a transformative tool and perhaps most importantly of all i understand executive decision-making which is making a tough call in a tough time with high stakes for which you're prepared to be held accountable. >> you are making a powerful case. carlie northern that thank --

>> thanks so much glat a little girl the's trip to the zoo ends with a big lesson don't mess with a big gorilla. >> whoa man. >> yeah, little different than the happy go lucky dancing gorilla in the jungle book. the animal charged right at the glass as you see there and ended up cracking it the toddler was shaken up not hurt and ran away. this just days after a mother was charged with endangering her child after allegedly dangling a 2-year-old over a cheetah exhibit. the boy falling in and breaking his leg. so as this happened, what do parents need to know to teach their kids to respect animals. joining me is conservationist abc jeff corwin. thank you so much for being with us. >> good morning, anna. >> you would think this is common sense don't dangle your child in front of the cheat exhibit. don't let your child beat on her chesley sullenberger and taunt the gorillas but
5:26 am
apparently some parents need some lessons, what are they? >> you stole the word out of my mouth. this is what keeps blinking in my brain common sense. the zoo has lots of safety and protocol measures in place to protect the public and to protect the animals that are there you need to remember and consider yourself a visitor. how would you act around a stranger that you didn't know? you would exhibit a level of respect and reservation that needs to be applied when we go to a zoo. when you go to a zoo. you are there to learn you are there to learn and experience. the last thing you want to dangle over the railings is something that is about the size of an and lope that cheat that like to eat. >> what does that tell you actually that the cheetahs did not attack. they must be so used to being around humans that how do you piece this together? how did the cheetahs not think of this toddler as
5:27 am
food? >> well i think it was very lucky for that toddler that maybe the cheetahs had previously eaten or they were distracted. it is true these animals work with people on a regular basis husband dry for these animals is priority number one for many of the zoos and aquariums in the united states. there are systems in place to make sure that we can help if something does go awry, but the most important thing that people need to keep in mind is to have the common sense. i mean, if you go there, at a zoo and you see a railing that's up to your chest and there is a predator beneath it, why would you put your child to the other side? >> of course, come on. well the sweet spot about the zoo and any of these places whether it's sea world or some zoo animal rights activists say these animals should not be. sweet spot when children want to conservative and treat the environment in
5:28 am
healthy ways. how do we take that away rather than gawking at these animals? >> that's an incredibly important point. you go to the zoo and many of these zoos, keep in mind, anna are in urban communities. for many children, this is their only access to nature. there are many scientists, biologists conservationists around today that were inspired from their first experience in a zoo. as a biologist today with the career that i do and i have was based on my dad who was a boston police officer and would drop me off at the franklin park zoo where i learned about animals. zoos are incredibly important to our communities. we need to teach our children to have respect. these behavior we see young people at zoos isn't limited to zoos. we see it with social media take time with the family. have them drink in the moment and walk away with that special gift about learning about environmental stewardship. >> couldn't have said it better. jeff corwin. thank you so much for your insight today. >> thank you. >> 28 minutes after the hour. next on the rundown white

6:01 am
heavily fortified u.s. consulate in northern iraq. >> and isis now taking responsibility for that bombing that killed at least three people, just feet from the consulate in erbil, iraq. >> elizabeth is following the story. she's live in washington with the breaking details on this. good morning, elizabeth. >> good morning. isis does claim responsibility and they were targeting americans. it killed at least three people designated outside the entrance of the heavily guarded u.s. consulate in the northern iraqi city of erbil. the state department does acknowledge reports an american teacher was injured in the attack, but won't comment or confirm due to privacy reasons. consulate personnel or guards were not killed and the state department is continuing the investigation. >> there are no reports of injuries. we appreciate the rapid response of the regional government
6:02 am
authority to this matter and we will work with them to investigate the the incident. >> an somoli born citizen pled not guilty to charges he wants to kill americans on u.s. soil. his lawyers portraying the man as a, quote, normal 23-year-old kid with no criminal background or violent aspirations. we do know he left the country a year ago to join the americas americas in syria. the indictment said mohammed was training in home break-ins, explosives and hand-to-hand combat. back to you guys. >> thanks a lot, elizabeth. appreciate it. there's one city in iraq which is making all the headline this is week. it's the city of ramadi. could it soon fall to isis? has it already essentially fallen to isis? and what would the symbolic nature of that look like for
6:03 am
americans? general martin dempsey was asked that question. take a look at his response. >> the city itself is not symbolic in any way. it's not been declared, you know, on one hand or central to the future of iraq. what we want to get back i would much rather that ra many adi not fall. it won't be the end of the campaign should it fuel. >> ramadi was one of the deadliest places for american troops. you would think there would be some sort of symbolism there. >> well, debbie lee thinks it's got symbolic significance. her son was the first navy s.e.a.l. killed in iraq. she's written a letter to the chairman of the joint chiefs. she says i'm shaking and tears are flowing down my cheeks as i watch the news and listen to the the insensitive pain inflicting comments made to you and the fall of ramadi. my son and many others gave their futures in ramadi.
6:04 am
it mattered to them. as goes ramadi, so goes iraq. news administrations have mized that ramadi would mall. you will not minimize the sacrifice my son made. awaiting an apology. debbie lee. >> i'm sure a lot of mothers are echoing what debbie lee is saying in this letter here. >> in his defense the general's defense, of course what he is also saying that's not his job to highlight symbolism is necessary. he's tactical. he's talking about the strategy of our armed forces and perhaps isis doesn't see ramadi as a tactical benefit. it is not the base. >> of course and he doesn't make a policy. he carries it out. from the people elected to run our military. starting with president obama. he's nearly a function nar. of course. they're the ones to blame. but i feel the pain as a mother. how would you like it if your child died in iraq? if he lost a limb or permanently
6:05 am
disabled with a head injury there? and then you saw it revert to a worse condition than it was under saddam hussein. would you feel like your sacrifice was honored and worthwhile? >> we we saw the symbolism and the parallels. pulling out too early, and we saw the same discussion a couple of months ago. what unfolded on the bridge with isis grappling there. the very same thing. >> so it's really simple. here's all i want. it's not a relitigation of the iraq war. that's over. what's not over is the future. and the lessons we take from iraq are not only applicable they're essential to going forward. what have we learned from iraq? you never hear anybody explain that. i would like to know much more about what we've lered. >> learn from it so we don't repeat it. what does it do for our morale for our troops right now. >> these guys have learned nothing. >> should we be asking the same
6:06 am
questions of the 2016 candidates? >> of course. first questions. onto other stories making headlines. five teenagers are under arrest in a terror plot targeting australian police. investigators say the teenagers were inspired by isis and planned to unleash a vicious knife attack at an upcoming memorial to veterans. and looking to 2016. top gop candidates on their way to new hampshire for the leadership summit. but this morning it's another potential candidate making all the headlines. karlie fiorina spoke to us earlier. >> i will probably be running for president in a few short weeks. we're probably going to do something late april first part of may. so we're coming up on a formal decision and announcement pretty soon here. >> pollster frank lutz is at the summit right now. he joins us in ten minutes or so. and governor mike huckabee on may 5th we're hearing something from him. what will it be? and a gas line ruptures overnight in california sending

6:11 am
spoon, she's happy. >> not a monogrammed wooden spoon. that would lead to kidnapping. >> i think this woman is just a completely off her rocker. >> and neurotic fearful parent parents produce neurotic fearful kids. daddy is home, you're fine. >> or is she practical? is she saying look i don't want you to waste your money on bad gifts because i'm going to return them and buy baby formula. if you're going to get gifts, these are the ones i'm going to get. >> he's like, you know what, this is fine. this is something done for weddings all the time. i'm getting married and i feel weird having a registry. we hold you republican hopefuls gathering in new hampshire at this hour to get their case for if white house. we have a live look. here it is. how are voters reacting? frank is polling the voters right now. he is live next with the one thing they really want.

months there's going to be a new president. >> that's the big theme, right? they want a big change. of course these are republican voters. what has been the overarching theme of their response to listening to these speeches? has there been a standout among the crowd? >> there really hasn't been. in fact, i asked them to indicate who they supported or if they were undecided. they all yelled out at the same time, and you can't tell. there was no front-runner, nothing close. but there's two things you're looking for. they prefer a governor over a senator. they want someone who knows how to get things done and has executive experience, and if they want someone electable more than ideological. as much athey want to agree, they want someone who will defeat hillary clinton in the fall. >> that's big trouble for senator marco rubio. we foe looking at history, frank, senators don't often get
6:17 am
elected president. we have very few. we can count on one hand. jfk, senator obama. that's about it. >> and you have to go back to warren harding. that was 1920. so it has been a long time. but they are not nervous. the last question i asked them is who do you think will win in the fall? hillary clinton will have billions of dollars. do you think the republicans can win? and a room of about 300 people, only one person thought hillary clinton would be the next question. they have tremendous faith that the american people will wake up, will pay attention to then candidates. will listen to the issues and then in the end, reward the republican. >> it's a wide playing field right now, frank. what do the candidates need to say to emerge from the pack when you can't distinguish. what can one candidate do to stand out from the pack among these voters?
6:18 am
>> they want someone passionately patriotic. they feel that the current administration isn't delivering that to them. number two is they want specific solutions. they don't just want to know generalities about balancing the budget. they wan to know some of the details. and number three, they want to be able to know that they can actually get it done. promises are not good anymore. promises will not be trusted because of what previous candidates or preefs presidents have done. tough be able to show you have a record of accomplishment. and that's why governors have the advantage in this primary season. >> and not looking to warren harding for any kind of inspiration. frank, always great to see you. >> i don't think the people here know who warren harding is. republicans it took them 50 years to forget about him. for you at home. if you want to join a fox news focus group, go to luntzglobal.com.

6:25 am
and regrettable things. as frustrated as i was, i should choose to betake the high road. does she deserve a second chance? >> she does deserve a second chance. this is almost like 1984, the book and movie, where everything can be seen by camera. everything. everywhere you go everything you say can be seen. and she's in the public eye, and to berate someone on the wap someone looks, the education she's putting herself under a rock. >> good point. can she come back from this, lily? >> i think it's very difficult. we remember youtube lasts forever. looking at it from a business standpoint, espn, i'm sr. surprised how they're addressing it. only seven weeks. people will not forget in seven weeks when you have the voice of

your buddy ron once said he could install your ceiling fan. he couldn't. and that one time ron said another chili dog was a good idea. yeah, it wasn't. so when ron said you'd never afford a john deere tractor, you knew better. now ron does too. introducing the e series. legendary john deere quality. unexpected low price. drive one of the e series tractors during a drive green event at your john deere dealer. controversy is brewing over a proposed statue to honor billy graham. it was proposed the statue was put put in the capitol. they would like to replace a
6:45 am
statue of their former governor with a statue of billy graham. now some republicans in north carolina are protesting. they're saying lawmakers should consider other replacements. they're against it. here to weigh in is the founder of carolina rising. great to see you this morning. so on what grounds are people objecting to a billy graham statue? >> good to see you, tucker. you misstated that in the intro. it is north carolina state democrats who have strenuously objected to going ahead and moving forward with a statue of the reverend billy graham. they have come up with a lot of excuses. whether it be procedural. they wanted to consider a lot of alternatives. whether it be actors or basketball coaches. and i think it has taken the republicans by surprise.
6:46 am
i mean, i think they thought this was the most un uncontroversial item they could possibly propose to replace a racist governor. a governor that began his career by instituting the only cuein history and replacing him with the reverend billy graham, which can't actually be done in until the reverend passes. but this would begin the process. >> so just to be clear. so aycock is the governor you're talking about. the complaint was bill li graham is still alive. you're saying the statue wouldn't be there until he passes. what is the complaint democrats have with putting a billy graham statue in the capitol? >> some of them thought the legislation moved too fast. they wanted it to have more debate.
6:47 am
they wanted to consider a long list of people from dean smith, to andy griffith to on and on. but dean smith is a fine, fine man. we honored him when he passed away recently. but we're going to get into basketball coaches. jim at nc state started the cancer foundation. none of them rise up to billy graham, and here's the ironic thing. you know. in the the darkest hours of the clinton administration, in the monica lewinsky scandal, who did they turn to? >> he was a skupulously bipartisan figure. he was also a christian. >> i think that's part of it. remember, hillary clinton will be turning to these people asking for endorsements very soon. does she stand with dr. graham or does she stand with these democrats who voted against dr. graham? >> that's a great question.

6:53 am
see what was going on there. >> what was going on there? >> incredible. it's incredible. >> these children there's a variety of different types of swimming programs for children some are more intent, some based on games and songs but all learning safety skills in the water and learning if they are in a situation they're in danger and they happen to not have help for a second they'll be okay. it's incredible to see a baby go underwater and how they respond. they're holding their breath, open their eyes and looking around. >> babies have a natural reaction to automatically holding their breath. you think it's terrifying but right out of the womb they naturally want to hold their breath. >> it is a reflex they have from the time they're born. you're not starting baby with swimming lessons at 1 week old but they have that reflex and lose the reflex over time if they're not continuing their swimming lessons so it's great to start them early. >> this one is on the cover sort of reminds me of the 1990s

nirvana album cover. i love that. some of the kids look super duper happy but these little kids it's like what's going on. did you have some sigh crabbies too? >> we had a whole range. these are babies. some are going to be in a great mood and some maybe not in the best mood because they missed their nap. overall i thought it was a joyful experience. i don't have a lot of experience with babies before this but i had a great time and to see the dedication from the parents how they are signing up they're there and know how important it is and swim iminstructors how good they are with the children and what they're doing to save lives is inspiring. >> we're looking at behind the scenes footage. was it easier to shoot babies or hollywood actresses who are bigger divas. >> i don't know, i haven't gotten down the actress path yet. >> stay away from that. >> you say naps, many models
6:55 am
would getet angry as well. >> kids a short window you can photograph them in their best light. you're putting lights under the pool underwater for most of the afternoon, how did that play out? >> the babies are only going underwater a couple of times for a second or two. my opportunity to take pictures is super limited. it's difficult to make a book because you don't have much opportunity. i could be with the dogs in a half hour, hour, jumping 50 times. the baby goes up once, and then over again and we're done. >> do you have a favorite picture or baby? tough to pick? >> the mermaid is one of my favorites. the mermaid is incredible and that's a costume mom showed up with she had made. she brought it out and baby ayla had worn the costume a few times so she was used to it. people say how is the mermaid relevant? a lot of the children as part of their lessons they wear clothes
6:56 am
and costumes so if they end up in the water, chances are if they fall into a pool somewhere, who knows what they'll be wearing. they want to have the experience, the children are wearing clothes hats, glasses, shoes, so they could have that experience in the water fully clothed and know they shouldn't panic >> and a pass of it memory, if you fall in the pool, this is what you do. seth casteel thank you very much the book is called "underwater babies." puts a smile on your face. >> thanks for having me. more "fox & friends" coming up next. don't go away. tt8fq@q:)q1m-[f=/p2!a>l
