The appeal of this Blue Apple best seller is both primal and totally charming: mothers need to have their babies within their sight, and babies bloom as i the sun came out when their mothers appear. Here's how it works: a page showing an anxious mama is transformed when a gatefold is turned over to reveal a smiling mother and her animal offspring. The great Simms Taback crafts seven satisfying reunions.
Harriet Ziefert is a well-known author who has written over one hundred books for children. When she is not writing, she commutes between her homes in Lincoln, Massachusetts and Maplewood, New Jersey.
