But even when I'm far away,Warm, reassuring feelings emanate from this lovely picture book. Mama Bird tells her child how her love slips inside his lunch box, sits upon his shoulder when he sings a happy song, and snuggles on his pillow while he naps. Jane Dyer, illustrator of the bestselling Time for Bed, creates positively touchable watercolors of a pudgy-cheeked preschooler bird and his working mom. Hints of hearts nestle playfully on the pages: on the blackboard under the letter H, and sewn onto his pillowcase. Oh My Baby, Little One will resonate deeply for moms and kids alike, and may make daily separations just a little bit easier.

It brought tears to my eyes. The author beautifully expresses what every working mother feels -- sadness when separating from her child, all-consuming thoughts of her child while at work, and absolute joy when they are reunited.
My son is only 15 mos. old and may not fully appreciate this book yet, but he will enjoy the beautiful illustrations and the familiar scenes (a pudgy chick getting ready for his nap, playing alongside his friends, etc.).
I bought this book as much for myself as for him and will keep it on a high shelf (safe from a toddler's destruction!) along with other books such as In Case You Ever Wonder and Love You Forever to be truly appreciated when he is a little older.
This is a gift any working mother and child will treasure forever!
Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the message of the book and the illustrations. I currently work full-time and will be going back to work full-time 12 weeks after she's born (Feb 2016). I couldn't make it through the first few pages without tearing up. I can't imagine how hard it's going to be leaving her each day to go back to work. And when she's older and understands the words I will be reading, I hope that this book helps her understand that mommy loves her and misses her when she's at work. On top of the storyline, I really like the illustrations -- they are simple and the colors aren't too bright and bold; this book has a very classic feel to it. I'm not a big fan of books with so much going on (illustration-wise) that it takes away from the story.
I really recommend this book as a gift for any mom, most especially for those who work outside the home.
This is a touching, charming book, with beautiful illustrations (I bet every mom will think baby bird looks like her own child!). It's a wonderful way to share with our children how much we love them and how that love never leaves us, even when we're apart -- perfect whether you're a working mom or not!
I like this book so much I've already checked out other books by the author and illustrator.
BUY IT! You'll love it!
