"Happy Mamas" is a tender paean to the many faces of a mother's love for her infant, including pandas, catfish, kangaroos, elephants, monkeys, penguins, ducks, wolves, owls, and humans too. The questions phrased in the songlike poems are all begun with "What makes a Mama happy (at different times of the day and night)?" The many answers are displayed in beautiful scenes and tender compositions of Mamas of all kinds and their children. Happy Mamas rejoice in their children's full bellies, smart learning, playful antics, growing independence, and just happy singing, but most of all,.... "As the moon glows and the stars shine, what makes all Mamas, from desert to jungle, from forest to field, from land to sea, happiest by far? having their little ones next to them, tucked up tight, all cuddled and kissed... from tusk to tail, from beak to claw, from snout to paw, ...from head to toe. That's a - my baby's loved and happy kind of Happy Mama." The lullaby poem ends with a wish for "Happy night, Happy Baby! Happy night, Happy Mama!" Every line of poetry and every oval portrait is laden with mother-child love in this beautiful story of myriad animal and human mothers and their children.
Happy Mamas would make a lovely baby shower or mothers' day gift, and it also lends itself perfectly for a mother-child bedtime bonding book. It is a sweet serenade that will nurture young minds and sing straight to a mama's heart.

The Fairview Review - Suzanne Costner

From the Inside Flap
Happy Mamas is a lyrical read aloud that pays tribute to the universal joys of mothering in the animal and human kingdoms. Charming illustrations depict all the activities that bring joy to a mama and her baby over the course of a day: feeding her cubs bundles of bamboo shoots; teaching her calf how to trumpet a loud jungle cheer; playing peek-a- boo; watching her chicks fly from the nest; singing a serenade to the man in the moon; or crooning owly lullabies through the deep, dark woods. But as the moon glows and the stars shine, what is it that makes all mamas from desert to jungle, from forest to field, from land to sea happiest by far? Mamas and babies everywhere will delight in this happy romp a perfect ode to motherhood.
