PreS-K–Readers embark on a heartwarming journey of a mother’s boundless love for her child as they stroll through the enchanting world of a zoo. With each animal they encounter, the mother playfully compares her child, expressing her unwavering affection in delightful rhymes. “If you sang like a screech owl in the night, I would be there to hug you tight. If you crawled like a gecko up the wall, I would still love you best of all.” The tender moments continue at home, where the child’s antics and bedtime routine unfold amid the comforting embrace of maternal love. Both caregiver and child have dark skin and hair; the duo’s bond shines brightly through captivating digital illustrations that mimic watercolor and ink. This is a wonderful tale of family love, perfect for story time gatherings and to recommend to those needing soothing bedtime rituals.
VERDICT A lovely addition to any collection, celebrating the enduring beauty of unconditional love.
