If you think human mamas are the only ones to show love for their children then you are very much mistaken. Here are some very different mothers who show their children how much they love them in all kinds of different ways.

Here is the mother spider who uses all eight of her arms to give her baby four hugs at once. The mother ladybug loves to tell each of her “tots” how beautiful their spots are. The mama flea is such a loving mother that she arranges for her children to have a special treat – an outing to a dog show. And a mama bumblebee hums such wonderful lullabies to her babies that they all sleep as soundly as you please.

With hard-wearing pop-ups on every page and a warm and rhyming text throughout, this preschool pop-up is sure to delight little children. Its warm message of the abiding love that mothers have for their children makes this a perfect title for bedtime reading.
