Kathleen Pelley's Latest Children's Book Happy Mamas Released
By: Kathleen Pelley
Happy Mamas is a lyrical read-aloud that pays tribute to the universal joys of mothering. Beautiful water color illustrations depict all the different ways human and animal mamas love their babies over the course of a day: diving deep for a fishy feast; teaching her tot how to make a dandelion wish, singing a serenade for the man in the moon – and finally, lulling her little ones into a cozy sleepy time cuddle. Mamas and babies everywhere will delight in this happy romp through forest, field, jungle, and beyond, as they see how universal a mother's love can be. Ideal for story time or one on one sharing.
An activity guide is also available on the author's website preschool-2nd grade.
