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.
