Animal mommies affirm their affection in cheerful, warm illustrations reminiscent of early animation. A polar bear mommy keeps her baby "feeling snug" under a night sky with pastel stars; a duck mother keeps track of her six yellow ducklings ("Mommy listens, Mommy hears"); and a blue whale mommy "chases off" her baby's fears (a toylike submarine). Finally, a mommy elephant "shares her love" with her baby, their trunks entwined, as two red hearts float overhead. The basic text is low-key, but the artwork is endearing. Ages 3-5.
