Overview

"I love my mommy because she gives me great big hugs."

"I love my daddy because he takes naps with me."

These two beloved, best-selling concept books, richly illustrated by Ashley Wolff, are now available as board books for small hands.  The youngest nursery tots will appreciate how phrases and actions from their own experiences also apply to animal babies.  Each book begins with an affectionate scene between a human parent and child, but moves on to caregiving in animal families.  "She listens when I talk" shows a mamma cat and her mewing kitten.  "She tucks me in features a kangaroo with her joey peeking out of her pouch.  "He sings me songs" shows a gray wolf and his cub.  In concept, text, and art, these are among the most warm and reassuring lap books ever.

Familiar phrases from a preschooler's world give a child's-eye view of being an animal baby. Many different animal fathers are shown caring for their young.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another pair of board books is also offered in English and Spanish-English editions: I Love My Mommy Because... (Quiero a mi mama porque...) and I Love My Daddy Because... (Quiero a mi papa porque...) by Laurel Porter-Gaylord, illus. by Ashley Wolff. Children may well identify with the baby animals pictured, all of whom love their parents for all that they do for their children, whether it be a daddy emperor penguin that "keeps me safe and warm" or a mother panda that "gives me great big hugs." Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-- In both words and pictures, these books introduce animal parents as they care for their young. A simple analogy is set up between a human child's narration of how he or she is nurtured, and the corresponding behavior among sheep, chickens, pigs, etc., is shown in soft, realistic, full-color illustrations. Sturdy stock pages make these books an excellent choice for sharing; labels above each picture identify the creatures depicted. Roger B. Hirschland's How Animals Care for Their Babies (National Geographic, 1987) is a more scientific presentation of this subject, but for a slightly older audience. --Barbara B. Murphy, Shaler Area School District Libraries, Pittsburgh

    A fantastic story for fathers and daughters!

    Well done, Ms. Porter-Gaylord! There are so many books that capture the relationship between mothers and daughters, but not enough between fathers and daughters. We purchased this book for father's day but ended up reading it early. I highly recommend this book which promotes, reading, discussion, laughter....it is a fabulous book.
