Baby Penguins Love their Mama by Melissa Guion

Perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day . . . or any day!

When you're a mama penguin with lots (and lots) of little ones to take care of, the days can melt together in a blur. Monday: swimming lessons. Tuesday: sliding. Wednesday: waddling. And on and on. Mama loves her babies so much. Do they know, she wonders, just how much?

As it turns out, they do--because they love her just as much! And to show it, they surprise her with a thoughtful gesture of their own on Sunday.

In her companion to Baby Penguins Everywhere!, Melissa Guion offers another adorable book for sharing between mother and child. A perfect Valentine's Day, Mother's Day—or any day—gift for the person who is always there for us.

Mama penguin loves her babies. Every day she does something with them for one day, they will no longer be babies and they will have to care for themselves. It is exhausting work but mama loves her babies and at the end of the week, mama takes a well-deserved nap. One of her babies asks her what would happen if after all her work they become a better penguin than her. Mama considers this question as her babies climb all over her. Mama has no answer as her babies surround her, giving her a big surprise and telling her that she will always be their mama. What a sweet story. On the pages, the illustrations are busy portraying mama’s activities with all her babies, showing her constant attention to her children. There is never a dull moment as all the children are busy and mama must keep them in line and show them how to learn the ways of the penguin. The illustrations are not busy but just enough to draw attention to the scene being played out and the watercolors are simple and contrasting enough for small children. I want to thank YABC for a copy of this novel for I received this book as a part of 12 Days of Christmas. This is my own opinion of this children’s book.
