Mama's Wild Child

ABOUT THE BOOK
Age Level: 5 and up | Grade Level: K and up | Illustrated by Nora Hilb
Mama’s Wild Child

“If I were your chimpanzee mama
and you were my chimp,
we would knuckle-walk in the jungle sun.
When the stars came out,
I would build us a sleeping platform
so we could rock-a-bye in the treetops,
listening to the lullaby of leaves.”

How do parents care for their children? Mama chimps cuddle their babies. Papa wolves play with their pups. And mama and papa ostriches take turns watching over their chicks.

Meet the mamas of the animal world—then flip this book over and meet the papas. Little wild ones will delight in discovering that human families and animal ones are not so different after all.

“In this Flip-me-over Book, a human mother and father each tell a child how various animals care for their young….The calm, sweet language is embellished by Nora Hilb’s illustrations done in ink and pencil on watercolor paper…The many features of this title work together quite nicely.” – School Library Journal
