This was a baby shower gift that is still a family favorite two years later! My daughter can almost quote it word for word. Now I give it for baby shower gifts!!!
At 4 months old, this was my daughters favorite book and at 15 months, she still loves it. As soon as we open it, she smiles. It's a very warm book showing the bond between mother and baby through animals. I highly recommend this book as well as all the books in the Harper Growing Tree series.
My 2y.o. daughter loves this book. It shows the loving relationship between mama and baby in a simple rythmic poem. It is just perfect. I am going to buy Papa Papa for my husband to read to her.I hope it is as special as Mama Mama.
My 10-month old daughter loves to have this book read over and over again. And if I'm not reading it, she will just look through it on her own. This book has a special way of emphasizing the mother/child bond with soothing, repetitive phrases. The illustrations are beautiful as well. I would highly recommend this book to new parents, or give it as a shower gift. It warms my heart every time my daughter and I read it.
