Children's LiteratureEach double-page spread has a luminous illustration of a young animal with its mother, depicting one of the reasons the youngster loves his mother. "My mommy plays games with me" shows a mother chipmunk playing hide-and-seek in a hollow log with her baby. A doe and her fawn show that "mommy stays by my side." In the end, a pair of owlets snuggling with their mother announce, "I love my mommy." Even the endpapers are full illustrations, with a daytime and night-time scene, as the animals progress through a full day to night-time cuddling. This quiet, gentle book would be a great bedtime story—the evocative illustrations set the mood for a restful night. 2004, Boxer Books/HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 7.
