Overview

A picture book collaboration with World Vision that celebrates life the world over!

Mom and Me is an affectionate look at the many ways mothers and children relate to and rely upon each other. When nourishment, assistance, instruction, comfort, and special hugs are needed, Mom can offer them in special ways that only their children will ever know. The deep bond they share is beautifully depicted in these storytelling images.

This delightful series is the result of the collaboration between Tundra Books and World Vision Canada to bring an array of exceptional photos from around the world to very young children. Each book centers on a universal theme, familiar by its very nature, yet new due to faraway settings and ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic diversity. Each remarkable photo essay will foster discussion, observation, and many smiles as children compare and contrast their own experience to that of others. Watch for further books in this series.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

A spare easy-to-read text combined with high-quality, full-color photographs highlights youngsters and mothers throughout the world involved in universal activities such as bathing, feeding, and providing comfort and support. Each spread demonstrates strong emotions and provides evidence of the woman's love and pride in her child. The vivid photos present a variety of settings, including many different cultures, and draw viewers into the pages. Unfortunately, the specific cultures and locations are not identified.-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA

Kirkus Reviews
This photographic early reader shares the strengths and weaknesses of its World Vision series companion, Getting There (2009). A string of easy-to-read declarative sentences ("When I need help, Mom shows me how") appears paired with gorgeous photographs of mothers and their children around the world. Each spread contains one full-page, full-bleed photo and one or (usually two) photos on the text page. The photographs portray a dizzying variety of cultures, locations and economic backgrounds, effectively marrying the universal with the particular. But there is no indication where they were taken, limiting the book's ability to impart a sense of the vastness of the world to readers. All proceeds go to World Vision, an international relief and advocacy organization. (Early reader. 4-8)
