Little Jumbo’s mama is not only the greatest, but the biggest elephant ever! Naturally, she is not really the biggest in the world but from his perspective, she is a giant. She is brave and protects him; she plays with him, finds the tastiest fruit and cuddles him when it is time to sleep. And best of all—Mama loves him just like he loves Mama.

Praise For Mom Loves Little Jumbo: Hello, I am Jumbo

"Toddlers will relate to the simple gesture of reciprocity when Jumbo picks a flower for Mom—what small child, elephantine or not, doesn’t enjoy gifting a dandelion? A touching final page of baby elephant looking adoringly up to Mom confirms it: This is a perfect read for Mother’s Day or any day." —Kirkus Reviews

"Perfect for a Mother's Day-weekend read." —Sian Gaetano, Shelf Awareness,
