Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Perfect for parent-child sharing, the paper-over-board Mama Loves You by Caroline Stutson, illus. by John Segal, demonstrates the affection that animal mothers shower upon their young. Delicate watercolors portray porcupines, hummingbirds and ladybugs-until, in a final spread, a human mother tells her baby under a nighttime sky, "You're my star,/ My moon, my sun./ Mama loves you,/ Little one." Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The premise is that all mothers love their offspring and so the message is conveyed by a number of animals and their children. Each spread features a stylized creature such as a big yellow and black striped bee or a big orange butterfly. The text is simple "Come a-buzzing,/ Straight to me./ Mama loves you, / Honeybee. After going through a litany of like text for a porcupine, bee, butterfly, polar bear, humming bird, mouse, bug, deer, and cat, readers reach the end where Mama is holding her little one and declaring "You're my star,/ My moon, my sun./ Mama loves you,/ Little one. A book that will reinforce that bond between parent and child and provide a nice wind down for the day and a soothing bed time read. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 3 to 5.
—Marilyn Courtot

    Our favorite bedtime story!

    I love this book and so does my little boy. There is nothing better than snuggling up with him before bed and reading this story together. It shows the loving relationship between the mommy and baby of different animals and the rhyming dialogue really keeps my 1 1/2 year old into it. My husband reads it "Daddy loves you," when he reads it to our little one. I always give board books as shower gifts, and this is one I always include (along with some of our favorite Boyton books).
