The Lovereading4Kids comment

From happy morning sing-a-longs with the birds, to storytime and lullabies at bedtime, Little Bear describes some of the fun things he does with his mummy. A jolly rhyming text and some quirky details (mummy’s invented recipes include peas on toast!) keep it sweet but not sentimental. Mums and toddlers will love sharing this book, which is a warm and heart-felt celebration of those ordinary activities which are actually so special: trips to the park, making things, splashy bath-times. The illustrations are full of familiar things to spot and talk about. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

My Mummy by Paula Metcalf

This touching celebration of the special relationship between mother and child is the perfect gift for mother's day. Now available as a chunky board book with a shiny foiled cover -- just right for small hands.

The perfect mother's day gift!

I could travel round the world

And know I'd never find

A mummy even half as nice

Or brilliant as mine!

From playing games to making things and cuddling her baby tight, Little Bear's mum is great at everything -- but best of all, she belongs to Little Bear.

About the Author
