About This BookIn this Spanish translation of Joosse's Mama, Do You Love Me?, a sensitive little girl, who lives in the Arctic, attempts to learn just how much her mother loves her.
In a simple question-and-answer format, the girl repeatedly asks her mother if she loves her, imagining different scenarios to test her mother's devotion. What would Mother do if the young girl doused a lamp with water? What would Mother do if the girl pretended she was an angry polar bear? What would Mother do if the young girl ran away from home? No matter what the girl imagines she would do, her mother's reassuring answers let her know how deeply loved and precious she really is.
The text is literary and touching, and the book includes a glossary of Inuit terms for classroom study. Readers will enjoy the richly colored illustrations that reflect the vibrancy of Inuit culture and Arctic wildlife.
