Gutman, Anne and Georg Hallensleben Mommy Snuggles. BOARD BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2017. $5.99
Mothers and babies from the animal kingdom snuggle together in different ways. Koalas carry their babies on their backs, otters hold their babies on their bellies. Various animals are shown and the book finishes with a toddler and his mom--who holds him in her arms!
I really like this simple board book. The illustrations are done in a more classic art style versus the cartoonish characters you often see in kids books and the coloring is very calming. The text is straightforward and heartwarming. Parents will enjoy sharing this book with their youngest readers.
