This bilingual favorite is now in Bengali!
Babies—whether in snowy dens, warm lagoons, cozy nests, or living rooms—are carried and cuddled, nurtured and nuzzled. Stunning images and gentle verse, translated by Shahnoor Islam, will capture the curiosity of even the youngest readers as they see how animal mothers tend to their cubs, pups, calves, and chicks.
Beautiful images introduce the reader to attachment in the natural world. Watching mothers lend a paw, wing, flipper, or hand to care for their young fosters empathy, kindness, and compassion. Supplemental back matter and a free Teacher's Guide helps parents, librarians, educators, and healthcare providers creatively describe caretaking, while introducing a range of early science concepts.

“A simple and direct reflection of the role of a mother in raising a child. Whether human or animal, a mother always wants her child to grow up with the utmost care, attention, and safety. There will be a remnant of a mother’s affection and deep feelings for the child forever.”
—Monirul Islam, Art Educator, New York City Department of Education
