Mama's Day

Mama's Day

by Linda Ashman Illustrated by Jan Ormerod

Somewhere there's a mama
lifting baby from a crib,
Snapping rompers, looping laces,
Brushing crumbs from baby's bib.

With its simple rhyming verse, this book pays tribute to mamas and children. From waking babies up in the morning to hushing baby to sleep at night, mamas' lives revolve around their children. The gentle illustrations depict all kinds of mamas and babies, sunning on the seashore, walking in a bustling market, and quietly rocking in a wooden chair. But wherever they are, mamas and babies are together, and this book celebrates the special bond that they share.
