Overview / 简介:
|"I love my mommy because she gives me great big hugs." |
This beloved, best-selling concept book, richly illustrated by Ashley Wolff, is now available as a board book 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 mama 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.
From Organization / 国外机构评价:
|Although the titles of these companion volumes threaten to engulf the reader in sentimental accounts of how parents endear themselves to children, they instead deliver sweetly appealing looks at how animals care for their young. The opening page of the first book reads, "I love my mommy because she reads me stories," and shows a boy and his mother curled up in an armchair. The motif throughout the second book, meanwhile, is "I love my daddy because he plays with me." Though the text that follows describes situations that children can identify with ("She feeds me when I'm hungry"; "He watches over me at night"), each illustration subsequently features either a domestic or wild animal with his or her young, clearly labeled and engaged in the specified action, and realistically depicted in native habitats. Unfortunately, the tendency here to emphasize Mommy as caretaker and Daddy as protector may reinforce sex-role stereotypes. Sturdy, coated pages and paper-over-board bindings make these reasonably priced books almost toddler-proof. Ages 18 mos.-4 yrs.
Foreign Customer Review / 国外客户评价:
|The pictures of baby animals and their mothers, tied together with descriptions of things human mommies do for their babies, make this a favorite book for the pre-schooler in our home. The pages are heavyweight paper, which resists tearing when held by small hands. In addition to the standard preschool fare of kittens and pigs, the book also features beautiful artwork of more exotic animals, such as grey whales, sea lions, dolphins, otters, koalas, polar bears and more. I highly recommend the book for children as young as 2 years old.|
