Hello, Baby! I’m Your Mom

Sleeping Bear. Mar. 2022. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781534111462.
Baby-Toddler–This bright, engaging book highlighting a mother’s love will keep a baby’s and a toddler’s attention. Although it begins and ends with a human mother and baby, Bunting has also written humorous rhyming verse about animal baby and mama pairs: “My darling little porcupine, your quills are soft, but they’ll be fine. They’ll soon be sharp, and that’s okay. We’ll hug each other anyway.” Ishida’s soft, cuddly images will warm mama and baby readers alike, while Bunting’s soothing rhymes are sure to be a favorite refrain before bed. Back matter includes photographs and facts about each animal featured in the story.
VERDICT Recommended for purchase.
