Are You My Mommy?

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-- These books feature, respectively, a tiger cub searching for his father and a chick searching for her mother. On each page the cub or chick meets a different animal who explains why he or she is the wrong parent, until the searches end successfully. The simple pop-ups are fairly effective: some animals lift their heads to look at each other or to nod at readers as the page turns. The tone is so pleasant that even a jaw-snapping crocodile looks friendly. In fact, the animals are amicable, but low on character, a price the pictures pay for their simplicity. The opportunity to match a baby with a parent animal is a sure-fire preschooler pleaser, and this aspect helps these books to moderate success, even if text and pictures don't pack much of a wallop. For a more deluxe treatment, try Deborah Guarino's Is Your Mama a Llama? (Scholastic, 1989) with its lovely illustrations and sweet verse. --Liza Bliss, Worcester Public Library, MA
