"My favourites are the tortoises because they have nice patterns on their shells."
"Look at the babies! Parrots, caterpillars, toucans, elephants......"
".....And a froggy! And tigers! I like tigers. And a mouse! ...."

Sparse text, simple pictures! This book was an absolute pleasure from beginning to end. Tim and I thought of all the animals we never get to paint (we usually have to do bears, rabbits and mice), and we put a lot of them in here.
This book doesnʼt have a story, it just celebrates different kinds of Mums. There are lots of things going on in the pictures for very young children to find and add to the reading experience.
