Yes, I was captured by the adorable cover and I couldn't get away ;-) While I'm not sure all the illustrations inside are as cute, many of them are very, very cute and I really liked the variety of animals included. The rhyming text has a charming cadence. A great snuggly read-aloud.

The universal theme of this picture book is the primary and intimate relationship between mothers and their babies – regardless of species. The book presents a series of animals - mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and insects – each shown on a two-page spread with brightly-colored, high-action illustrations. The repeated format of rhyming text allows emergent readers to predict and guess at the words based not only on the type of animal, but also the large, expressive font paired with each an...more
We've had this book since Bea was a toddler. It was a popular bedtime book when she was little - cute animal pictures, cute poem, short, opportunities for cuddles and kisses... Now Bea thinks it is babyish and scientifically innacurate. (Mom, seals aren't lazy - they just can't sit up on land. And penguins aren't clumsy - it is more efficient to slide on the ice.) Sigh. My girl is growing up. I pulled this off the shelf today for her to read it out loud to me because I knew it had unusual text f...more

Mommy Mine is a cute book that talks about Mommy of course. Mommies are generally the center of a child's universe and they love to hear about stories with mommies. Of course after reading this story we could discuss each child's mommy. Another aspect to bring to children's attention is even animals have mommies and every mommy is different. What makes your mommy special?

Learning Experience:

I would give the children printed copies off all the mommies and babies in the story and have the...more

I love Jane Chapman's illustrations, especially the two-page spread at the end showing all the mommies and babies. Adults will see the emotional closeness that parents and children share. I like that the illustrations include the life stages of the animals. The lifelike, colorful photos will capture infants' and toddlers' attention. An added bonus would be cuddling in their parents' arms. This is a good bedtime read.
A cute enough book that presents many different animals and usually an adjective that describes the animal. Sometimes an action is highlighted. It all rhymes.

The illustrations are nice. This is a book to use with students to teach adjective use that doesn't follow adjective-noun. Mommy nice, helps the student identify the word that describes the noun, even if it doesn't follow the predictable pattern we use.
This was read at story time. It was cute how it showed all types of animals with their mothers. It reminded me of Dinosaur Roar because of the short sentences that describe. Its cool for showing that all types of animals have mothers, even the fierce ones. You could probably use it metaphorically to show that there are all types of families.
I love this sweet little book.
I recommend this book to two year olds everywhere!
Mothers and children of all sorts share this story of different kinds of mothers. Told in rhyme, this book is best for babies and/or toddlers.
Summary: Whether it is by croak, flutter, or fur, all children claim their mothers as their own.
Beautiful illustrations.
Stephanie Cox
My 7 year old daughter and I love this book. The story is sweet and the illustrations are bright and colorful.
A great one to read around Mother's Day, or to create "Mommy Mine" books or poems (to give as gifts, of course!)
I really like this book! The way Mommy reads this book and acts out the story makes it really fun to read!
Minimal text and large, humorous and lively animal illustrations make this a great book for toddlers.

A simple animal mother book. I got it out since I had toddlers for PJ story time tonight.
A is a little animal addict, but she and I never get tired of reading this one.
Very cute, perfect for storytime or read aloud for fairly young children.
Not much for plot, but the pictures were great.

One of Madison's favorite books!
