My Mother Is Mine

Marion Dane Bauer

Illustrated by Peter Elwell

Board Book


In soft and gentle images, each animal-child sees something different yet universal in their mother.  A tribute to all mothers, this sweet bedtime book is also an endearing portrait of the love that enters the world with each and every child.  It’s really the sort of story that I would wish all young children could hear.

My mother is soft, [sheep]
My mother is strong, [tiger]
My mother watches me
Long and long. [owl]

And so it goes through the kingdom of animals and into our hearts.
