From bestselling author Kate McMullan and renowned illustrator Tao Nyeu comes MAMA’S KISSES, a brand new bedtime story that is a must for every little one’s nursery.
About the Book:
It’s bedtime in the rainforest, but baby panda, elephant, orangutan, and leopard are nowhere to be found. Their mamas set out to look for their wayward little ones, calling them to bed with a soft lullaby. But look! The baby animals are crawling, creeping, hiding, and giggling, playfully staying just one step ahead, until the very end when everyone is united for a sleepy snuggle… and, of course, a kiss from Mama.
Tao Nyeu’s cherubic animal characters light up the pages of this spectacular addition to any bedtime repitoire. As Illene Cooper remarks in her starred review for Booklist, “It’s startling to realize the bursting- off-the page art is only executed in shades of blue, yellow, and orange against white backgrounds; such vibrancy would normally require a rainbow of colors.”
MAMA’S KISSES embodies everything that a great bedtime story should have – gamboling rhymes, a gentle color palette, adorable animal friends, a touch of humor, and a sweet resolution to boot. The perfect gift for new moms this Mother’s Day, Tao Nyeu’s delightful jungle illustrations beg to be displayed on nursery bookshelves and McMullan’s delicate rhyming story is sure to whisk little ones gently off to sleep.
