The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a lovely reassuring story for adults to share with the young children and it is also a perfect gift for mum at any time of the year to show how much they're loved. Join baby elephant as he learns to play, swim, read, listen and lots more, but there to help him learn these things is mum. There's also a companion title so the dads aren't left out - My Dad Will Do.


My Mum is There by Martin Thomas

It's not easy being small. Nothing is simple. Not speaking, sleeping or walking. Not counting, reading or swimming. Not even hopping or skipping or jumping! But the love of a mother is an amazing thing. With mum close by there's no need to be scared. With mum close by anything is possible.
