Praise For Mama's Belly

"Halpin creates a tranquil natural landscape in her lush, earth-toned paintings, while indoor scenes are infused with warmth; the absence of modern technology, beyond an array of snapshots, provides an air of timelessness. Readers awaiting the arrival of a sibling will gain assurance that there will be more than enough love to go around."

— Publishers Weekly

"The brilliant jewel tones on mostly white backgrounds keep the focus on the family relationships and the girl's shifting emotions . . . A good book to share with children eagerly awaiting their own siblings"

— Kirkus Reviews
