Oh My Baby, Little One, ill. Jane Dyer, Harcourt Brace, 2000.
When Baby Bird says good-bye to his mama at school each morning, he feels sad. Mama Bird feels sad, too. Sometimes it’s hard to be apart. But as Mama says, the love they share is with them always, keeping them close until the best part of the day–when they are together again. With its lyrical, rhyming verse and sunny, vibrant illustrations, this soothing book will reassure little ones as it celebrates the extraordinary–and abiding–bond of love between parents and their children.
