All kinds of mommies 25 Sept. 2002
By Robyn A. Roche-Paull - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a delightful book! My 3 year old daughter loves this book as it is filled with many types of Mommies, human and animal, and how they take care of thier young. Espcially nice to see is the human mom breastfeding her baby (no bottles in sight--other animals nurse their young too!). The book shows protective moms and busy moms and sweet moms and "wild" moms (yes, there is a tattooed and peirced mom with green hair--so what, lets teach our children NOT to judge people by their looks!) And of course all the animal counterparts.
If you want a wonderful book showing the all the great qualities human moms have and who their counterparts are in the animal kingdom, plus a great introduction to animals in general, then I highly suggest you buy this book!

Wonderful and fun book about moms! 18 Oct. 2007
By S. Perkins - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 2 year old has really enjoyed this book (we checked it out from the library). She likes looking at all of the different human moms and animal moms. She liked the baby in the bathtub, the tiger, and the wildebeest, of all things! The illustrations are very sweet, especially of the moms cuddling and playing with their babies. I think the illustrations of pregnancy are excellent, to see the baby inside mom could be great to help a toddler understand why mom's tummy is getting bigger when she's pregnant. I also love the illustrations of breastfeeding, and of the mom using a sling to carry her baby. My little girl and I have had a nice time reading this book together. I am planning on adding it to our collection.
