" A cute story with soft images. The theme that there is always room on mother's lap is reassuring for children since it, quite transparently, implies they will always have room in their mother's heart and life. A beautiful and moving little book. " said.

" This is a caring and loving book for children ages 3-10. The little boy's favorite spot in the world is on mommy's lap and not even baby sister can fit. He soon finds that there's "always room" for the both of them. Great family story and lessons of love, acceptance, and sharing. This can also be used to prepare a child for a new baby in the family. " said.

" In this book the reader observes as Michael, a young Inuit boy, learns his mother’s lap, like her love, is all encompassing and still feels good even when shared with his sister. Every reader can connect with this simple universal childhood experience. It is illustrated with loose earthy pastel sketches. " said.

" It was a pleasure to read as a nap time story. The illustrations depict the cozy Native American Inuit family in a way that makes me want to raise children in Alaska and be kind of poor, and a single mother. The writing is kind of cheesy and sentimental. I guess that is the point of the book though. " said.

" While this book has since been updated with more colorful illustrations, I liked this version just fine. Using it for my Mother's Day storytime, I especially appreciated the fact that the characters were Eskimo. Diversity ROCKS! This is a sweet story that shows there is always room on a mother's lap...and how very true that is. " said.

" I loved this book. I had an edition from 1972 and from 1992, and the illustrations have changed over the years, which was really interesting to see. The mother in the 1972 edition looked more like a grandmother, and she was more rotund than the 1992 edition. It was the same illustrator, but she modified the illustrations, adding color and a more contemporary look to the newer edition. " said.

" PB:30 On Mother's Lap. This book brings back great memories of snuggling with my Mom on her lap and to this day, I still snuggle close to my Mom because there is truly not a lot else like a mother's touch of love. The story was not that interesting but I am glad that Michael decided to let his sister snuggle too and being a good big brother. It teaches children to always share their mother's lap because there is always enough room on a Mommy's lap! " said.

" Age: PreschoolMedia: pencil and inkIllustrator Style: Large, simple pictures with plenty of white space for an early listener to focusWith Inuit characters, this universal storyline explores the loving embrace of a mother and how it may sometimes lead to jealousy and greed for the child. In the end, mother explains to the older brother that there is always room on mother’s lap for everyone—even baby brother—to sit. " said.
