I am yours; you are mine;Mama loves you, Porcupine!This simple, sweet rhyme describes how mothers love their children. From a porcupine to a butterfly, a polar bear to a mouse, each young animal has the unconditional love of its mother. At the end of the story are a human mother and child:You're my star, my moon, my sunMama loves you, little one!
Perfect for parent-child sharing, the paper-over-board Mama Loves You by Caroline Stutson, illus. by John Segal, demonstrates the affection that animal mothers shower upon their young. Delicate watercolors portray porcupines, hummingbirds and ladybugs-until, in a final spread, a human mother tells her baby under a nighttime sky, "You're my star,/ My moon, my sun./ Mama loves you,/ Little one."
