Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
From human to hippo, all babies love to be carried by their mothers. In this cozy book, the offspring narrate, each requesting rides in specific ways: "Mommy Kangaroo,/carry me please/safe and snug/inside your pouch." With thick, childlike brushstrokes, vivid paintings give a close-up look at the many ways parents carry their young. Fascinating, yes, but comforting too, by showing how clearly the pairs love each other. (Ages Birth to 2)
Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2006
Publishers Weekly
Jane Cabrera, with her thick black line and broad, friendly brushstrokes, explores many different ways animal mothers transport their young in Mommy, Carry Me Please! A baby hippo rides atop its swimming mother and a joey tucks safely into mommy kangaroo's pouch. In the final spreads, a human mother takes her boy into her arms. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There are many ways that mothers carry their young. I am not entirely sure that a baby hippo would be so easily balanced on its mother's back, but the others seem to be pretty true to nature. Emperor penguins do keep their chicks warm on their own feet and in their brood pouch (not depicted). Other animals move around with their babies clinging to their fur or body hair (monkeys, beavers, koalas, spiders), inside a pouch (kangaroo), in their mouth (tiger and crocodile). Along with the way that the baby animals are carried, there is a little more information about the habitat, kids will glean that beavers swim, koalas climb trees, spiders weave webs, and more. The young child shown at the end is being carried in his mother's arms. Something that most kids probably take for granted. For another book covering a similar subject see Carry Me!: Animal Babies on the Move by Susan Stockdale. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-On each spread of this warm lapsit book, a baby animal asks its mother to "carry me please." Each mother accommodates by transporting the youngster in that animal's special way: lemur under its belly, kangaroo in a pouch, tiger in its mouth, crocodile in teeth, penguin on its feet, and so on until the cozy ending when a human child is carried in the mother's arms. The art features Cabrera's trademark breezy, blocky, and bold animals in bright and energetic colors that focus children's eye and attention. This will be useful as a read-alone for beginning readers as well as a welcome addition to simple science collections for the toddler set.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Cabrera's latest offering details the many ways, and in some cases, the reasons why, animal Mommies carry their babies. All sorts of animals from all kinds of habitats are represented here, among them hippo and lemur, kangaroo, beaver and spider. "Mommy Penguin, / carry me please / on your feet / to keep me warm." Readers will appreciate the varied reasons the babies give for wanting to be carried. Safety, warmth, travel and comfort top the list. Some, however, will leave youngsters wondering: Crocodile baby wants to be carried on his mother's teeth "just for fun." Others give no reason at all. The little boy who ends this sweet parent-child celebration, though, leaves no doubt as to his reasons. "Mommy, Mommy, / carry me please . . . / and hug me / in your arms." His facial expression speaks volumes. Vibrant background colors, large figures, minimal detail and bold, visible brush strokes comprise the kid-appealing artwork that will keep the focus on the Mommy-child interaction. Sure to carry the day. (Picture book. 2-5)
