Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
A mother's love is unconditional, even when the mother is an unusual creature, part elephant, part dinosaur, part bi-pedal mammal. Mom's cute, little green child is full of mischief as the day progresses; but at every developing mess, Mom expresses her feelings by restating "I love you." The reader sees the little one, who sports a stripped tail, using the morning porridge for painting on the wall, having a wild time with the craft supplies, racing around with a friend, swinging through the air on a vine, climbing to the top of the latter to explore nature, and finally snuggled into Mom's arms for the night. As she follows her little one around all day, she continuously repeats her refrain of love. Among the many books that address this subject (Mama, Do You Love Me, etc.) this is not a first tier selection but may be useful to add to collections that have a high demand for bedtime reading with little people. It could serve as a good source of action words for developing vocabulary. There is a web site on the back of the book to consult for information about the author and for activities for related to books. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
