School Library Journal Review

PreS-In this loving ode, a variety of young animals describe the nurturing attributes of their dedicated mothers. "My mommy feeds me" shows a bird carrying a worm to a nest of chirping chicks; "My mommy stays by my side" depicts a doe and her deer; and "My mommy works really hard" features a buck-toothed beaver and her pup. The book concludes with a touching illustration of an owl with her wings draped around two owlets and the simple, powerful phrase, "I love my mommy." The lush paintings on unbordered spreads capture a childlike charm and the bright hues and friendly depictions of familiar creatures will appeal to young children. The oversized format and the large typeface make for an ideal read-aloud for lap-sit and toddler storytimes, and parents who are just learning to read English will feel especially empowered after sharing this accessible story with their children. With its depiction of animal mothers spending time with their babies and the simple text, the book touches on important parental themes and childhood needs.-Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
