A mother is tucking in her small child, but he has a question! This creative young boy wants to know if Mama will still love him if her were a scary ape, a terrible dinosaur, a green alien or a stinky skunk. Mama, of course, will love her little one no matter what he is and so she tells him until he is satisfied enough to finally say ¿I love you, Mama.¿What a wonderful and addictive book. I had gotten this book years ago, I have read it to the kids so many times, I think we all know it by heart but the pictures and the words are so fun and so loving that it really does get read and read again. I love the pictures by Cyd Moore, they really portray the boys descriptions of his mythical self. I asked the kids for the best part, they said `all of it¿ and then, `I didn¿t like the dinosaur¿. I love that the kids know that Mama loves the boy no matter what, just like most mothers (including me of course).

Wonderful story of a Mother putting her child to bed and the child asks the mother things like "Will you still love me if I am a slimy swamp monster." The mother then reassures the child. Great illustrations.

This book is about a child who is asking his mother how much she loves him. He goes through many characters and each time asks his mother if she will still love him. Each time his mother replies with an answer that explains that she will always love him no matter what. I thought this was a very cute, fun book. My children love all of the characters that the child pretends to be, and I love that I can show them that a mother's love never changes. One could use this book in class to teach about family love and family values.

Even though I get tired of the repetitive silliness the kidlets keep begging me to read this book again and again and again, so the author must be doing SOMETHING right!

Love this book! My kids still laugh and they're 5 & 8. I'm a huge fan of funny books that parents can also enjoy and this one fits that category.

I bought this book as a gift from my 3 and 5 year old for our new baby, they love reading it to each other and can't wait to read it to the baby. My husband enjoys storytime too, whenever this book is a choice!

This is my daughter's favorite book. Since she was 18 months old she would carry it around and find it before every bed time. It got her talking and was just easy and fun to read to her. We both got into it and it became a very special time for just me and her with this book. Now she's almost 3 and she loves to recite to me by memory and likes to act out the pictures or read it to her stuffed animals. This is the book i'm going to hold on to and read to her for years and dig out for her kids.

I first got this book when my son was a small child, about the age of three. It quickly became his favorite book and I still call him "Stinky Face", when I think he needs to smile. It gets him every time. He is graduating soon from Basic Training with the Air Force and I'm making a gift of him this book as well as "I Miss You Stinky Face". Highly recommended for children of all ages who need a reminder, every now and then, that Mom always loves you, even when you're a skunk. Good companion to Oh, The Places You'll Go.

I cry everytime I read this to my 3-year old grandson. He now has a new baby brother who I can't wait to read it to. It is the sweetest book in the whole wide world.

This is by far the best children's book ever!! I have read this book to my son since he was a baby and now that he is 9 I still read it to him and he sometimes reads it back to me!! I think this is a great book for any mother but especially for a mother and son. I know that this is one book that we will not give away...it's a keeper!! I know that this is the one book my son will remember forever...and hopefully he will remember when we used to cuddle up under the blankets and read it to we both fell asleep!!

This book is ok. It's a sweet story, but it's a bit long. I think it's better for 1 year olds and above

This is the second copy of this book that I've given to my grandchildren. The first is practically falling apart it's been read so much! One reason I bought the board book version for my youngest (17 months) this time! This book helps children understand that their mothers love them unconditionally.

I first bought this book because my friend highly recommended it and because I thought the title was cute. My ten month old loves this book. It is one of his favorites next to Yummy Yucky and Gossie Plays Hide and Seek. He is entertained by the illustrations and gets so excited each time I read "But Mama". My husband also likes listening to me read it to our son. I think it teaches a great lesson about how a mom will love their child no matter what. It is a great book that we all enjoy. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I bought this book for my infant son and read it to him at bedtime. It became one of his favorite books (second to Goodnight Moon). He would ask me to read it to him over and over. Now that he has outgrown it, it has become his 2 year old brothers favorite book also. I also enjoyed reading it to him all those nights. I recently purchased this book for my girlfriend who is expecting a baby in April.

A creative and adoring story that is just imaginative and mesmerizing. My 3 year old son loves this book along with the whole stinky face series. A young boy wants to ensure that his mother will come home to him no matter what may go wrong. All of his questions are answered by his rest assured mother so vividly and colorfully, finally putting his mind at ease. This mother and son book, along with the whole series is exceptional. This book truely captures the inquiring mind of a child. The illustrations are breathtaking and well connected to the book. Children will benefit from this colorful type of creative fiction.
