" great bedtime book about mother's love for child. beautiful illustations. " said.

" "animals, babies, illustrations put to animal/baby poem" " said.

" Adorable book featuring an array of animal mothers expressing their love for their baby.Sylvia Long's illustrations are delightful...as usual :). " said.

"I picked this up because I thought it would be a good fit for a blended family. Each page features an illustration of a different animal/baby pairing with accompanying narrative of the animal instructing the baby. On the skunk page you've got the parent skunk saying to the baby skunks "I'll walk a line for you to follow, snuggle with you in our hollow." The overall message is that I will teach you these things and do these things for you because you are my baby, and that relationship spans multiple species and types/shapes/looks/colors of families. Seemed like a great fit for a nontraditional family.

Alas, I was disappointed by the second to last page where a white mother snuggles her white baby. Now it's not only not racially inclusive, but dads were cut out of the picture too. I don't expect all my books to showcase diversity, but this one was perfect for it, had so much potential for it, and lost it all on such a stereotypical depiction!
