#Review #PictureBook MOMMY LOVES YOU by Helen Foster James @SleepingBearBks #MMBBR

From the author-illustrator team that created Grandma Loves You! comes a touching story just for Mommy and baby. Told in charming verse with the signature bunny characters, this book celebrates the deep love a mother has for her child, this pair's adventures and tender moments will warm the heart.

I was crying the whole time I read this book.  It captures the sheer joy of being a Mom.  The poem flows beautifully and the illustrations are gorgeous.  My boys are 8 and 10 and this book is one I want to read to them every night before bed, regardless of their age.  It is that beautiful and I know that my boys will appreciate the story and the love behind the words.  This is one of those books that will make you take a few moments to enjoy your kids, not matter the age.  If they are young, you will cherish the time so much more...if they are grown you will look back fondly at how far they have come.  MOMMY LOVES YOU will give you the feels, so have the tissues ready!!!

I find it such fun creating, for example, a thoughtful fox, a happy hippo, a shy sheep, or a caring bear!

Living in a magnificent place like Snowdonia helps a great deal.” Petra lives with her partner in Wales.
