This is a modern classic and if you don't know it you should! It's wonderful! A good book is simple and artistic enough to keep a young child's attention, but offers something for older kids as they grow. This one does that. Each page has a couple of sentences where a child keeps asking if her mama will love her even if she is naughty or whatever. The mother responds that she always will. The child's what-ifs get more and more outlandish (What if I stuffed salmon in your coat.... turned into a scary polar bear) but the mother replies always with the gentle constant love, along with 'Then I'd be angry' or 'Then I'd be surprised'. It's cute enough you don't mind reading it again and again, and it's full of Inuit culture. At the end, there is a glossary teaching you the Inuit words and animals used in the book. The love and humor will make it a favorite for children over many years, plus it's a great learning tool and plain old sweet. The art is fantastic too. I consider it a must-have!

This has always been on elf my favorite books. I love the illustrations and the sentiment. My 23 year old daughter still says to me"Mama, do you love me?" And I recite teh lines "...more than a dog loves its tail,...etc"

Just another reminder by Barbara M Joosse that "agape love is unconditional"! There is not one thing my children can do to cause me not to love them. I don't always 'like' their choices, but would lay down my life for them in a heart beat. Mama, Do You Love Me? is an excellent way to tell anyone that they are loved . . . in spite of themselves!

My daughter is 2 and we really enjoy reading this book. I love that it teaches her another culture and that she repeats words she would otherwise likely not hear. The story is great. We have read the Papa version at the library and don't care for that one at all.

This book is a favorite with my daughters. What kid doesn't like to hear over and over how much you love them no matter what! I am quoting this book for my daughter's high school graduation dedication. "I will love you forever and for always because you are my dear one!"

I discovered this book when we first moved to Alaska. Barbara Lavellee's illustrations are beautiful. The story is beautiful. Our kids LOVE the book. It quickly became our standard baby gift for friends in the Lower 48!
