How do you go about explaining breastfeeding to your children? At best it can be a little awkward, and very often new moms wait until the new baby is born before approaching the subject with older siblings.
However, help is at hand...
I was recently asked to review the most delightful little book, Mama's Milk, written by Michael Elsohn Ross and illustrated by Ashley Wolff. Now, given that in my pre-baby days I was an English teacher and I often asked my pupils to write book reviews for me, it seemed at first a little odd to be the one writing the review, but to be honest I was quite honoured to oblige as book reviewing is something I have often wondered about.
So what did I make of Mama's Milk?
Written by Michael Elsohn Ross, a naturalist and environmental educator, the aptly entitled Mama's Milk is the perfect introduction to breastfeeding for young children.
At first glance, I was struck by Ashley Wollf's charming watercolour illustrations which succinctly evoke the softness and gentleness of the book's theme and bring the story beautifully to life. I found the images reminiscent of books I myself had read as a child.
As I proceeded to read Mama's Milk, I could sense the care and attention that the author had captured in his tender, poetic and almost lullaby style of writing. Familiar and unfamiliar mammals are placed alongside human mothers, all feeding their young in a wide variety of surroundings. Something all the mammals share in common is the nurturing relationship developing between mother and offspring, and the language used to convey this bond is perfect for young minds.Read more ›
The illustrations were beautiful and my son enjoyed looking at all the baby animals.
Full of interesting facts as well. A great book to share with your children how wonderfully natural breastfeeding is.
