Baby woodland animals – duck, otter, rabbit, squirrel, deer, raccoon, bird, chipmunk, beaver, bear, fox – each share something that their mothers help them with. Last, a baby owl says “I love my mommy.”
Toddlers and preschoolers will love this book! It is a great quiet-time book, especially before nap or bedtime. Parents will likely tire of its simplicity (single sentence per page), but the cuddle factor is worth it! Once kids know the end, they will want to re-read just for the hugs!
Parents will tire of this before young readers, but it wasn't written for them! Kids love animals and enjoy stories that show the love of a parent. This does both!
This board book uses simple sentences to show the way mothers help their children.
With infants and children under 2 years old, point out and name the different animals on the page. If you know what the animal baby's name is, use that, too. [For example, a baby goat is called a kid, baby sheep lamb, etc.]
