"I love my mommy because she gives me great big hugs."
"I love my daddy because he takes naps with me."
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 mamma 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.
