There are several fun things you can do with this book. Each page presents a mother animal and her children. You can learn the names of the animals and their babies; you can talk about what sounds the animals make (that's what I did with my 16-month-old); and you can count, because each mother has an increasing number of young. The pictures are lovely, simple, and recognizable.

Synopsis: "Animal babies are so adorable that their mommies can't help but cuddle and love them. In this celebration of parental love, each mommy shows how much she loves her baby in her own special way."

My Review:This is my favorite of the set of books! Mommy animals love all their babies. The book uses the correct names for the babies. The images are all cute. And guess what . . . its also a counting book!

Saw this book at the SD Zoo, and fell in love with it!! I don't have children yet, and not planning on it for at least 6 more years, but I couldn't resist getting this book for future. It has pretty pictures and is very educational! Can't wait to put it to use!

A beautiful board book your little one will ask for over and over again.

Each Mommy and little one(s) are drawn with love and care.

You can also count the babies on each page and the name of each baby animal is given.

Wonderful book.

A fine toddler board book, with beautiful illustrations. I give it 4 starts because Sophie is addicted to the whole series- Daddy Cuddles, Mama Kisses . . . We read it seven times before bed.
