" 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!

"This is a beautifully illustrated and lovingly written book. It is perfect to read to a baby or small child over and over." said.

"Jennifer Ward is one of our new favorite authors and Sylvia Long is one of our all time favorite illustrators so this book was bound to be a hit in our house. The text is very sweet and make a great bedtime read for toddlers/preschoolers. The desert setting is a fun change of pace for us since we live in New England. This would make an excellent baby shower gift." said.

"This book is so sweet and is great to teach about desert animals. I love reading it to my son!" said.

"We love Jennifer Ward's books. This one is a bedtime story depicting desert animals. Having grown-up in the desert it's nice to have a book that shares that environment with my son." said.
