We all know one definite thing about our mothers - that they love us. In this bright and cheerful little board book we celebrate the way in which "all mommies love their babies." Whether the babies are polar bear cubs, prickly little hoglets, bunnies, or kittens, their mother loves them. Even when there are lots of babies, mother loves them all. Of course a little boy thinks that his mother loves him "most of all."

By combining simple text with numbers, the creators of this book have given us a board book which honors motherly love and which also helps little children practice their numbers at the same time.
