The quality of the photographs in this book is awesome, models of clarity, color, and focus. The emotional pull of the photographs is awwwsome, a feeling the reader has with each turn of the page. Mother's Love is a memorable book that can be read in less than half an hour; it's also one you'll want to pick up again to swill around in your head the quotes from an eclectic mix of celebrities, and drink in the emotion and tangible love evident in each photo.

I enjoyed the short anecdotes of mother's love and heroism and the bonds of natural and adoptive mothers exemplified in the book. I also learned two new words - hoglet and porcupette.

Mother's Love is a book you'll enjoy and then want to share with others.

This photographer has done a beautiful job of capturing the love a mother animal shows to her offspring. I am amazed at the level of maternal instinct is present in the animal kingdom, and this book gives us a glimpse into that very special aspect of their lives. All ages will enjoy this book and is a great way to acquaint children with animals. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it for others.

I bought this book for my animal-loving mother for Mother's Day. I has beautiful photographs of various animal mother and child pairs. There is accompanying text that's fun to read at short sittings.
This book is a lovely little gift for those who love animals.

This Mom of 3 boys and many animals loved this little book. I wish one of my men had given it to me as a gift, but very happy I gifted it to myself.

Sent this to my 90 year old mother for Valentines Day and she was very touched, especially since we both love animals.
