Decent use of repetition, awesome art, and a solid glossary. ( )

My husband and daughter got me this for Mother's Day because our daughter's name is Rue. This book shows all different types of babies and their mothers. So sweet, and the illustrations are wonderful. ( )

I found this book on an old dusty bookshelf in my living room and knew I wanted to talk about it. This book talks about having a mom, which seems simple - but for some students can be a very difficult topic. The wording of this book is incredibly repetitive, but it is supposed to be. This book has absolute beautiful illustrations of different animals with their mothers on each page. The illustrations are unique in creative art style, colorful, as well as engaging. There is not really a point of view in this story, I think it would be a third person outsider telling the story.The plot is very organized and repetitive. I was slightly disappointed in this book. The book goes on listing things about how mothers love their children, but what if the child doesn't have a mother. This book is great for a specific time and place, but this place is not in the classroom. If students do not have a mother figure this book would definitely be very upsetting. The main message of this story is that mothers love their children.

In this book Eric Carle states in and sweet and simple way that every animal has a mother who takes care of them. With one question and very unique illustrations Carle brings his story together. I would recommend this book for early reader and would definitely read it to smaller children. ( )

Book description
A sweet little board book that lets very small children know that if there's a baby, there's a mother too. Very simple reading and rhymes. I would use this in my classroom for talking about families, for practicing question & answer forms, and to have for free reading. I also rather like the "more information" in the back of the book for talking about groups of animals (a pride, a skulk, a herd).
