The pictures are a little primitive, and the book would be better as a board book, but my son loves this book. At first he was not interested in it. But once I explained that all the animals were nursing, he caught on. He gets a kick out of the fact that animals nurse like him. I use sign language with my son, though he is hearing, and he began using the sign for monkey when he wanted to nurse, because he likes the nursing monkey in the beginning of the book. I'll ask him if he wants to be a nursing monkey and he smiles. He'll also put his arms around me, like the monkeys in the book, and he'll hug me while nursing. He only nurses like this when he feels like being a monkey. Another great book that I found is, 'I'm Made of Mama's Milk'. I just found this great board book written from the perspective of a nursing toddler. The author is Mary Olsen. My 18 month old son loves the photos and the beautiful verse. We read it about 10 times at every sitting. You can check it out at Maryolsenbooks.com. I just wanted to spread the word. I think this is the only breastfeeding board book I've seen. It is wonderful!
I gave this book to my baby on her first birthday. We were still a nursing couple at that time. She loved looking at the other baby animals nursing and being loved by their mommies. We read this book so often that each page has had to be repaired from being read so many times. A definate must for a nursing toddler.
