So many books. So little time.
A young child’s love song to Mommy.
"When I’m with Mommy, I feel cozy. We have the best time."
They do things together. Fun things. Almost magical: "It's raining," says Mommy. "Let’s sing the rain away."
The illustration shows Mommy and child out in the rain under a gigantic leafy umbrella! What a fun way to sing the rain away.
"I wish I had someone to play with," says the narrator. Mommy invites a friend over.
'"Would you help me make supper?" asks Mommy. I set the table. I stir the cheese on the noodles.'
She sees the child grow sad when the friend goes home. Now its Mommy who seeks help. Smart mommy.
"Would you help me make supper?" asks Mommy. I set the table. I stir the cheese on the noodles.
Soft colors, crisp illustrations. A complete story told in few words and short sentences. The kind that invites participation.
