Mommy, Do You Love Me? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No amount of mischief can shake a mommys assurance of affection in this humorous, heartening story sure to soften even the most trying days.

Even when a little chick makes funny faces, splashes in the mud, and comes in last place, his mommy still loves him. But does she love him when he cheeps and chirps and shouts very, very loudly? Does she still love him even when hes bad? With a reassuring text from Jeanne Willis and energetic illustrations by Jan Fearnley, this sweet story about the love between a parent and child is sure to comfort young readers.

Review:

"Through a series of tests — deliberate and not — a chick becomes almost totally convinced that his mother's affections are unshakable. Then, provoked by her son's almost manic cheeping, his mother momentarily loses it, and Little Chick is himself shaken. The mother hen repairs the breach with some unconditional reassurance ('Sometimes you make me mad, and sometimes you make me sad, but no matter what you say or do, I will always love you') and with that surefire parenting trick, the funny face. Working in warm, translucent watercolors and velvety black outlines, Fearnley (previously paired with Willis for Never Too Little to Love) gives her characters an endearing depth of expression and personality. The hen's beady eyes beam with pride and bemusement at her spunky, downy offspring, and when the chick loses a race, his mother comforts him with a pat of her wing and a look that is fully empathetic even as it conveys 'this too shall pass.' These highly individuated scenes of barnyard domesticity considerably buoy an otherwise predictable tribute to the constancy of mother love, while the large-scale watercolors on outsize pages let readers appreciate every nuance. Ages 3-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
