They accept each other (even their faults) and support each other throughout. At times, they work together to resolve problems or just experience the world. Other times, one of them is having a problem and the other one is always there for him. They're great role models for kids for how to be a good friend.(less)

Mama Loves You So by Terry Pierce
"A perfect read for little ones, especially before bed. "
Mama Loves You So by Terry Pierce
"If I had to choose, I'd say my favorite element of MAMA LOVES YOU SO is the beautiful, lilting language. The words mesh gorgeously with the illustrations, resulting in a feeling of comfort, protection, and mother-and-child affection. "
Mama Loves You So by Terry Pierce
"An absolutely sweet and adorable read. Nature fans, this is the book for you and your newborn! The gentle words and beautiful art is soothing and filled with love, just as the title suggests. Highly recommended!"

The art in this cute story is great for newborns and babies and the sentiment of the text is wonderful. It might be a bit too wordy for a newborn or baby, but then again, just hearing a parent's voice and feeling their lap is wonderful for bonding.
