Format: Hardcover
My Mama Earth is an absolutely enchanting children's book. The illustrations are extraordinary, as is the poetic, colorful writing. Huge kudos to both the author and the illustrator for creating a truly special picture book for kids. I'm generally not drawn to rhyme, but the ease with which Ms. Katz weaves together language is a joy to behold. She's a gifted and versatile storyteller. And Ms. Launay's artistic talents are simply remarkable. My only warning with this book is that you may need more than one copy, because your kids are going to be asking for it every night, and it's sure to get worn out. An exceptional work. A true stand out in the saturated kid's market. I hope to see more from this excellent team!

My Mama Earth still gets rave reviews! I've given these away as gifts and mothers love reading it to their children. There is also a web site that has a lullaby on YouTube. The book is award-winning!

I love these nature based books for my kids. Theres a lot of childrens books out there that stray from what is meaningful and i think this one has great purpose and insights that can be taught to children from a young age.

This new book, by Susan Katz, is just fabulous!! I brought it home to my 6 year old granddaughter, who read it aloud to me. She loved the rhythm of the text and so enjoyed the treasure hunt, trying to find the boy, the cat, and the uniquely drawn Mama Earth on each page. I have bought several more copies, what a beautiful gift to send.
