Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—In this calm, reassuring picture book, a toddler stays with an older woman, presumably his grandmother, while his mother cares for a variety of farm critters. The rhyming text queries each animal mother, "When will you come back?" and the creature answers by assuring her offspring that she will return as soon as her work is done. "When will you come back,/Mama cow, mama cow?/After I graze beneath the bough/Where grass grows green, mooo, mooo!/I'll come back, come back to you." The story ends with the boy's mother returning after completing her chores and giving him a hug. Goembel's soft, realistic illustrations reinforce the gentle mood of the text. In the tradition of Kate Banks's Close Your Eyes (Farrar, 2002) and Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942), this book about a mother's boundless love makes a good choice for sharing at bedtime, or for soothing young listeners who have faced a particularly challenging day.—Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME

Format: Hardcover
The farm woman gently leaves her baby with a caregiver while tending to the animals--and each of the animals has a mama and children set, too. In each case the mama has to leave, for a while, and assures the baby that she will be back. Not only is this gentle and reassuring for kids, but reminds us grown ups that even in the "good old days" when life was simpler, sometimes the adults had to do things and leave the children in the care of others. (I believe this was meant to be a modern farm family, but still.)

Pondor Goembel, the illustrator, is for me on par with Wyeth. I truly enjoy everything she does and her lyrical yet realistic-enough art is a delight.

My kids love this, when I leave them in the morning they ask "Will you come back for me?" and of course I say YES, just like the book.

My 1.5 year old carries this around the house for me to read it to him. Something about Moms and farm animals that he can't get enough of. It reads well - like poetry for little ones and is remarkably calming. A definite keeper.

Love this book! Very engaging for the 2-4 year old crowd, with wonderful rhymes about animal mothers that leave their children but always come back, culminating in the mother leaving the baby boy, only to come back at the end of the day. Great message about separating and returning with lovely pictures and really excellent rhyming.
