Lovely to Read Aloud Mar 28, 2008
Review by Sherry North, Author, Because You Are My Baby
I love this book - the sentiment is tender, the rhythm is soothing and the artwork is inviting. It is a joy to read aloud. The concept of mama animals expressing affection for their babies is not new, but Nancy Tafuri's choice of words is truly beautiful.
I do have to say my 4-year-old son does not like the book as much as I do... I think for him, it is a little too sentimental. He prefers books with more action or humor. Still, it's a great choice for a younger child - especially with the sturdy board book construction.
My new favorite Children's Book Jan 18, 2008
The first time I read this to my little girl it brought tears to my eyes. It is the sweetest story and the words just sing from the pages. I'm buying it for every pregnant woman I know!
An Instant Favorite Oct 4, 2007
The first time I read this book to my 10 month old son, he sighed and pushed the book over which is his indication to me to read it again. I probably read this book to him (omitting a few words to speed things up - his preference) about 20 times. I could feel his body relax as the book's refrain came over and over again. He wanted me to linger, however, on the sweet and rhythmic lullaby on the last page. Lovely book!
Beautiful book Dec 21, 2004
I love this book, I have been reading this book to my son from the day he was born, he is now 13 months. Now when I recite the first line of the book, he will grab it from his book pile and come sit with me to read together. I have even added my own verse at the end. This book is sweet and soothing and I plan to give it to all the expecting mother's I come across!
Beautiful book Aug 15, 2004
This book is awesome, I read it to my son every night at bed time. It's so tender, speaks of the love a Mother has for her baby. The pictures are gorgeous, and the words are a lullaby of sorts.
