Mamas And Babies Picture Book


A collection of nonfiction anecdotes about the love between animal mothers and their babies.

Thirteen pairs of animal mothers and their babies are presented in this loving nonfiction picture book. From polar bears to alligators to orangutans, this unexpected and deeply tender book reflects the fierce love and natural connection between a mother and her baby.

Each animal mother shows a uniquely protective characteristic, providing a snapshot of motherhood and childhood in nature that invites personal connection and reflection. The watercolor portraits mirror the soft text and bring the affection and love to life, further connecting us to our fellow animals. This is the perfect lap-time, bedtime, or snuggle-time read-aloud for mother and child.
