Somewhere there's a mama

lifting baby from a crib,

Snapping rompers, looping laces,

Brushing crumbs from baby's bib.

With its simple rhyming verse, this book pays tribute to mamas and children. From waking babies up in the morning to hushing baby to sleep at night, mamas' lives revolve around their children. The gentle illustrations depict all kinds of mamas and babies, sunning on the seashore, walking in a bustling market, and quietly rocking in a wooden chair. But wherever they are, mamas and babies are together, and this book celebrates the special bond that they share.

This is a really cute book. It is written using very few words, and the author uses a rhyming scheme. It compares mothers all around the world taking care of their babies. This is a good book to use with kindergarten students to teach them about rhyming words. Read full review
