Praise For…


PRAISE FOR STAY CLOSE TO MAMA

"Written with a storyteller's ear for cadence and repetition, the text has a sense of immediacy. Nicely composed and pleasing in their use of rounded forms and line, the broad double-page illustrations show up well from a distance. A good choice for reading aloud."—Booklist

PRAISE FOR STAY CLOSE TO MAMA

"Wohnoutka's large, almost impressionistic paintings grant a rich glimpse of the broad savanna and its denizens.—School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR STAY CLOSE TO MAMA

"Readers and their parents will instantly see themselves in this loving but ongoing conflict over the need to explore and the need to protect, and they'll undoubtedly find the two characters adorable and reassuring."—Publishers Weekly
