A cute little rhythmic, colorful book that kids will love! A reminder for every child that Mommy loves them, and that it's okay to hold her hand. You'll be surprised how far love can go!

1 John 4:18 - There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Jesus loves you!
For Jesus first loved me.... <3

Cute and sweet, but I didn't feel like it was as lyrical as other books about mothers being with their child forever. ...more

I bought Mama, Will You Hold My Hand? for my little two year old granddaughter who is at the “I DO IT BY MYSELF” stage. It's the perfect story to show her that holding Mommy’s hand is not just for safety purposes but it can also be tons of fun.

In this little book Mama and Sammy hold hands and share in many wonderful adventures together. They travel to the brightest star, on a rainbow’s tail and into their wildest dreams.

Mama, Will You Hold My Hand is beautifully illustrated and makes me feel a

Cute story of comfort for a child who wants to be reminded that his mommy will always be there to hold his hand. I probably would not use this in a classroom but it would be a good book for a home library.

I love my child very, very much but I don't think I can be there for them forever! Well, I can, spiritually, but you know, I'm like Marlin, Nemo's dad. There will come a time where you have to learn to let go. ...more

This book reminds me of my mom and myself. It is a mom telling her child that she will be there through everything and will hold their hand. I know that my mom will always be there to hold my hand and I liked the pictures as well.

This is a sappy book about a mother and her child. I loved this book because I am a sappy mother and I cried. Anything that shows the bond between mother and child I am a sucker for because that is such an important thing in my life.
