I Love My Daddy Because...Board Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These two beloved, best-selling concept books, richly illustrated by Ashley Wolff, are now available as board books for small hands. The youngest nursery tots will appreciate how phrases and actions from their own experiences also apply to animal babies.

Each book begins with an affectionate scene between a human parent and child, but moves on to caregiving in animal families. "She listens when I talk" shows a mama cat and her mewing kitten. "She tucks me in" features a kangaroo with her joey peeking out of her pouch. "He sings me songs" shows a gray wolf and his cub. In concept, text, and art, these are among the most warm and reassuring lap books ever.

Review:

"Children may well identify with the baby animals pictured, all of whom love their parents for all that they do for their children." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Sturdy stock pages make these books an excellent choice for sharing; labels above each picture identify the creatures depicted." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

"I love my mommy because she gives me great big hugs."

"I love my daddy because he takes naps with me."
