Mama Outside, Mama Inside
|ABOUT THE BOOK
Age Level: 5 and up | Grade Level: K and up | Illustrated by Susan Gaber
| The babies are coming!
A soon-to-be mother has lots to do before the arrival of a baby—whether she’s a bird weaving a nest in a tree outside or a woman setting up a nursery inside her home. In the heartwarming picture book, Mama Outside and Mama Inside share a common love for their babies, as they sing, feed and care for these new lives.
|“Warm, expressive paintings make this picture book a joyful experience. This heartwarming look at families is irresistible.” – School Library Journal|
|“Soft, glowing acrylic art and gentle, simple prose establish parallels between two mothers-to-be–a bird (Mama Outside) and a human (Mama Inside)–both of whom are preparing for new babies….The parallels and the illustrations warmly convey motherly love and care (with some daddy participation) in both the human and the animal world.” – Booklist|
