From dawn till after day is done,
Mama loves her little one.

A fussy lamb is crying, but her mama dries her tears.
A noisy bird is chirping, so his mama gently sweetens his song.
A sleepy kangaroo is fading, and her mama carries her in her safe, cozy pouch.

Even when kids are not at their best-no matter what, no matter when-mothers love their little ones. Lezlie Evans's soothing text delivers this timeless message with grace, and David McPhail's charming watercolors of baby animals and their mamas strike the perfect tone: safe, sweet, and gently playful. This special book is just right for every child craving reassurance, and for every parent searching for words to express unconditional love.
