Toddler-PreS–“Sweet little baby, asleep on my chest,/ warm and snuggled in your safe little nest,” begins a black-haired, pale-skinned mother’s accounting of her daughter’s expanding world. From mother’s arms to baby’s room to the yard to the neighborhood and beyond, no matter where she travels, her mother’s love will be there and the child will always be home.
VERDICT Although the book is a bit abstract for the intended audience, toddlers will find comfort in the tone and in the sweet illustrations of a little girl growing up never far from her mother’s embrace.
