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 care giving 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.

As a child explains the many happy, loving things Mommy does, many different animal mothers are shown caring for their young.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In keeping with the spirit of the season, animals and their offspring feature in four titles released just in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day. In I Love My Mommy Because... and I Love My Daddy Because... , both by Laurel Porter-Gaylord, parents give their babies ample reasons to be loved: "She tucks me in" (a kangaroo pats the joey in her pouch); "He makes me laugh" (a father chimpanzee engages in some monkey business). Ashley Wolff's mostly realistic, but always adorable animal portraits will have readers cooing.
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.
Children's Literature
This listing of reasons of why a child loves mommy—"She feeds me when I'm hungry." "She keeps me safe and warm." "She comes when I call."—becomes more interesting due to the illustrations. Each page is a different animal baby and mother performing the action mentioned in the text. For example, a mother kangaroo is shown putting her joey in her pouch. The text reads, "She tucks me in." According to a statement on the back inside cover, "The animal behavior pictured in this book has been verified by wildlife biologists." There is a wide range of animals from domestic, to farm, to woodland to arctic, to sea life, and more. Wolff's animals are drawn clearly and distinctly for the toddler set. The variety of animals in their natural habitats adds great interest to the book. The theme could lead children to creating their own responses to why they love their mommies. 2004 (orig. 1991), Dutton, Ages 1 to 4.

    Best Book Ever (for mom's to read to kids!)

    I happened to find this book while searching for something new for my daughter. I loved the story, short and sweet & to the point. The pictures are beautiful! Most importantly, she loved it, and sat through it, twice!
