In this stylish and sturdy pop-up story, five little tadpoles hatch from their eggs, but their mother is nowhere to be found. They set off to find her--but how will they recognize her? What does she look like? By meeting the other animals in the pond--Mama Duck, Mama Fish, Mama Turtle, and Mama Crab--they gather the clues they need, until finally an especially loud "Ribbit, ribbit " happily reunites the family. Young readers will delight in this charming family story, with its opportunities to identify mama and baby animals and its striking pop-up illustrations.

Praise for Where is Mama?
"Hung's gentle cartooning gives the animals personality, and the pop-ups have a nice sense of movement."
