Mothers are very special, whether they are a furry animal, a fish, a bird, or a human. In this book, Marion Dane Bauer celebrates all mothers. They are "brave," "strong," caring, forgiving, and so much more. With a mother sheep, a mother owl, a mother giraffe, and eleven other mothers, the author shows us how mothers care for their young, and how, above all, they love us unconditionally. They are our mothers and they are precious.

With a simple yet meaningful rhyming text, and beautiful soft artwork, this board book will make a special gift for a child and his or her mother.
