This is a dear book to us. My husband and me used to read it to the girls when they were very little, and 2 and 3, and it is so musical my husband made up a nice melody we both used to read it to them.

This was a cute book that showed the relationship between mother and child. I liked the artwork and the rhyming makes it a fun book for children to read along. If you read this you should also read the companion, Papa Papa.

I love this sweet book about mother love taking care of her babies. I like that all these things are things that I do for my baby as well.

Nothing new here, but well executed. Animal parents with their babies and text that highlights the bond of parent and child. Realistic, detailed artwork.

Loved it, I almost teared up when I first read it. I think motherhood makes you a sap! Lillian seemed to like it as well.
