Mama Always Comes Home is the story of Mama Cat, Mama Mole, and other mamas who have to briefly leave their little ones to take care of home but promises their children they will always be back soon. I had to pry a copy of this book out of my mother’s hands, she loved it that much. It’s a great book for mothers and mothers-to-be and perfect to help reassure children with separation anxiety that at the end of the day, Mama always come back.

Illustrated by Margaret Spengler

The animals at the zoo go on strike. They’re tired of working for peanuts and make all sorts of demands to the zookeeper. He tries to keep them happy by meeting them but it’s little Sue on her very first trip to the zoo who show the animals how great their job really is. My children loved this book and we all laughed as we read it aloud.

There’s an animal strike at the zoo. It’s true!
The headlines are telling it all.
The animals quit. “That’s it!” “We’re through!”
Say all critters from biggest to small.

  3. Hey my dear –

    I am used to reading your posts in my Google Reader and /not/ used to coming and seeing the new format (I know it’s not super new, but still.) I can’t believe you’re blogging on your hiatus, but, heck, we love Bear Snores On, so of course I’m entering. I’ll try to get a link thrown up on my page, too, just to help support you. (I am stopping short of supporting-you-by-helping-with-final-papers.)

  4. I just saw a tweet from Tara Lazar on these books. I’m always in for children’s books

  5. Hi, I’m here because of a tweet from wellreadchild. Please enter me in the drawing while I check out your blog. I’m intrigued.
