This is another one of my son's favorite books. This book makes him feel so happy and he loves all over me when I read it to him. This book talks about different animals and how the show their love to their children. This book is a Non-Fiction book because it portrays the animal in real life settings and activities they would do in real life. Every page has a different animal showing love to their baby in a different way. This book is a wonderful to read with your child because it will put a smi ...more
Remember I Love My Daddy Because…? This book is the maternal counterpart. We learn the fawn loves his mommy because she keeps him clean. The baby koala loves his mother because she gives him rides. Mommy Chicken takes her chicks for walks, and Mommy Sheep feeds her lambs when they are hungry. Mommies are wonderful – what do you love most about your mommy?

Conclusion. Two thumbs up.

Yesterday Ellen bought two books for Sophie. I promised I would read them for Goodreads, and I'm starting with the Mommy book because today is Ellen's birthday - her first birthday as a Mom. Happy Birthday, Ellen! The book is beautifully illustrated with animal mothers and babies. Each page features a different animal and the way it cares for its young. All these loving gestures are also practiced by human mommies. The caption for a nursing ewe is "She feeds me when I'm hungry." Whale and dolphi ...more

This is a fantastic little book that warms the heart and gives tribute to a mother's love. I appreciate the fact that the animal/baby pairings that are featured in this book stray from the typical animals seen in many children's books. In that sense, it really expands baby's horizons by exposing him to animals he's not seeing every day. The "I Love My Daddy Because" book is also fantastic!
much like I Love My Daddy Because...Board Book this book is great to read to your kids and teach them about animals and their young. See my other reveiw here

My daughter loves this book. It is interesting to see the different animals in the wild and how they care for their young. It is also interesting to read this with "I Love My Daddy Because" to see how they compare. Both are very well done.

This book is cool because it has the names of the animals and their babies ("panda and cub," etc.) as an extra reference outside of the actual words of the books.
This is a GREAT older picture book. I especially love it since it was a Mother's Day gift this year with a really sweet dedication, but that aside, it's worth a look.
Cute for wee ones who love animals; this shows how different animal moms take care of their young--and how they do much the same things human moms do.

Great board book for children aged 2 and younger! Shows similarities between animal mother/baby relationships and human mother/baby relationships.
