On Mother's Lap

On Mother's Lap

by Ann Herbert Scott Illustrated by Glo Coalson

Scott's well-loved story sensitively captures the cozy warmth of a universal childhood experience, portrayed in an Eskimo setting. Michael loves cuddling in the rocking chair with his mother and his favorite toys. When his baby sister wants to join in, Michael learns that there's enough room — on Mother's lap and in her heart — for all.
