The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tender and warm hearted, the soft focused illustrations and simple rhyming text make a lovely celebration of the many different ways in which all kinds of animal babies love their mums. The whale baby loves Mum’s guidance where the water is dark and dim, the mouse baby loves being held close and tight when the night time rustlings get scary while for the baby hippo it's because mum doesn’t mind how muddy it gets!


I Love My Mum by Sophie Piper

Mums have so many great qualities. They provide a warm, safe home, and teach many wonderful new things. They're great for having fun with. They stay close at night when things seem scary, and they always give the best hugs. In this heartwarming picture book, a range of baby animals tell us why they love their mums so much, and in so doing help young readers appreciate the love and care their own mums give. Along with Melanie Mitchell's endearing illustrations of cute baby animals, this is a heartwarming read for mum and child to cuddle up with and share together - and one that will be particularly welcomed by dads when looking for a special gift!
