Children's LiteratureSometimes you just need your mother as little Piglet so aptly demonstrates in this gentle and reassuring tale. Piglet has lost her mother and is inconsolable. Other animal mothers in succession offer to cuddle her, roll in the mud, make a daisy chain, and dance in the meadow. To these and all other maternal offers of solace, Piglet politely and sadly declines for only her mother will do. Suddenly a loud "Oiiiiiink" answers her tears and sobs—Piglet and her Mama are reunited. Mama warmly cuddles her little one and together they make a daisy chain, wallow in the mud and do all the things so kindly presented by the other mothers. The expressive watercolors convey Piglet's sadness and the soft palette evokes the sweet and tender message of the importance of a mother's love. A great choice from a winning Australian team. 2004, Harry N. Abrams, Ages 3 to 6.
