My aunt wrote this book so I automatically love it. Even if I didn't know her I would still love it~ It's a sweet children's book with great art work.

I think I'd give this a 4.5 if I could. I agree with the reviewer who said this would make a great gift for a baby shower/childs birthday. It definitely would and the thought hadn't occured to me.
I love books like this. This sort of book makes up some of my favorite all-time childrens books. It's just an awesome thing to read about a mother's love for her baby - through it all - no matter what.
This ends with a mother hugging her little boy but all of the "parents and children" before that are

Who Loves the Little Lamb is a classic little storybook feeling story about the basic love of a mother. Throughout the story who go through various scenarios of animal character kids making mistakes. And with every turned page, the child is being reassured that their mother's love is infinite and they will always have them there. Ending with a human little boy asking his mother if it is true that she will love him no matter the circumstance, where he is then reassured that indeed she will.

This book is definitely a fantastic gift for Mother's Day or a baby shower gift! As a mother of three young children myself, I found it to be one of the sweetest ways to reaffirm "teaching through kind persuasion" for small children and their mothers. Lezlie has a great way of making sure all of her books share the recurring theme of patience and love. David McPhail's illustrations in this book, reflect a real understanding on Lezlie's behalf, of how nature is an integral part of teaching childr ...more

This book can be used as a good reminder to young children that their parents love them all the time, no matter what the child is struggling with. Where it falls a little short is by using some shaming labels (e.g.: "naughty"), and focusing so exclusively on children's struggles. I think the accidents and "misbehaviors" would be better normalized if mixed with successes. Where this book falls a lot short is by completely ignoring fathers.

I probably never would have picked up this book but one of our library Patrons said that this was her daughter, so I had to give it a try. This is a book about how mom's love their kids even when they are annoying and bad. It is as sweet little book, not anything super duper amazing, but it would be a great bed time story, or to talk about mother's unconditional love.

This is such a sweet book. I love that the animals are not your typical cat, dog and mouse, but include a boar, a kid, and a wildebeest. The rhyme is simple and sweet and it is just such a good reminder to me as mama to use kind words even when my little ones are in trouble so they know I love them no matter what. We don't buy a lot of books, but this one is definitely on my wishlist.

This book demonstrates that no matter what a child does, the parent always loves them. Really cute, simple text, and features a range of animals from a kangaroo to a wildebeest! Best for toddlers and preschoolers.

Super sweet pictures and a gentle rhyme. This momma loves to read this one to her little lamb. I'm not one for buying books, so we checked this out from the library. Now I feel like I need to start a wishlist of books to add to our home library.

Baby animals who are grouchy or misbehave wonder who could love them, and are reassured that mama always loves baby no matter what baby says or does. A timely read for Audrey and me.

I loved this little book. Such sweet sentiments....each picture showing how a mommas love is never ending. I wish I would've gotten one of these for each of my Children when they were small.

I don't usually take the time to add children's stories, unless I want to remember them. This one's a keeper. Good reminder for mom and kids.
