Close-up photographs of animal parents and their offspring underscore the many things mothers do for their children. A tender, straightforward narrative, written from a child’s perspective, lists several reasons why the speaker’s mother is “marvelous” (“She plays with me when I’m bored,/ And carries me when I’m tired,” reads the text, while a lion cub bats at its mother and a lemur carries its young on her back). None of the animals is identified, but most will be readily recognizable to parents, who can also use this board book to introduce hippos, polar bears, and orangutans, as well as cats, ducks, and elephants. Available simultaneously: My Dynamite Dad. Up to age 3. (Apr.)
These little animals know: moms are marvelous! Moms play with them, carry them when they’re tired, and comfort them when they’re feeling bad. Sweet wildlife photos of animal moms with their babies will charm children and mothers alike! This book is the perfect gift for all the current and future marvelous moms in the world.
