A human mama tucks her child into bed with stories of wild animal mamas, like a kangaroo that keeps her joey safe in her pouch. Flip the book over and a papa shares stories of wild papas that care for their young like a fish that carries his small fry in his mouth then spits them back into the nest.

Nora Hilb’s warmly hued illustrations capture the special relationships animal offspring share with their mamas and papas.
