    Yes, I was captured by the adorable cover and I couldn't get away ;-) While I'm not sure all the illustrations inside are as cute, many of them are very, very cute and I really liked the variety of animals included. The rhyming text has a charming cadence. A great snuggly read-aloud.

    Standard fare but great fun for toddlers.

    The universal theme of this picture book is the primary and intimate relationship between mothers and their babies – regardless of species. The book presents a series of animals - mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and insects – each shown on a two-page spread with brightly-colored, high-action illustrations. The repeated format of rhyming text allows emergent readers to predict and guess at the words based not only on the type of animal, but also the large, expressive font paired with each animal mother (whether elephant or alligator)...“mommy huge, mommy hairy…mommy spiny, mommy scary!” The bright color palette and lush illustrations lend themselves to the playful and lively tone that remains consistent throughout the book. This book is appropriate as a read-aloud story for toddlers and would be excellent for emergent readers who could look at the pictures and predict the descriptive verbs/adjectives for animals ranging from frogs to bears; “mommy jump, mommy funny…icky, sticky mommy honey”. As a bedtime story, this book would send children off to sleep with a message of love, comfort, and security.What I enjoyed most about Mommy Mine is the message that children can feel safe while they explore, investigate, play, and learn under the watchful and protective eye of their dependable mommies. The author and illustrator did a nice job of conveying the mother-child relationship as lively and fun rather than sappy or corny. The book does not condescend to the reader by categorizing the young animals (and by association, human children) as helpless, coddled babies, but rather embraces a sense of adventure in a context of maternal tenderness.

    We've had this book since Bea was a toddler. It was a popular bedtime book when she was little - cute animal pictures, cute poem, short, opportunities for cuddles and kisses... Now Bea thinks it is babyish and scientifically innacurate. (Mom, seals aren't lazy - they just can't sit up on land. And penguins aren't clumsy - it is more efficient to slide on the ice.) Sigh. My girl is growing up. I pulled this off the shelf today for her to read it out loud to me because I knew it had unusual text font design/kerning/alignment and wanted to see how she'd do reading it. She did great! yay.

    Review:Mommy Mine is a cute book that talks about Mommy of course. Mommies are generally the center of a child's universe and they love to hear about stories with mommies. Of course after reading this story we could discuss each child's mommy. Another aspect to bring to children's attention is even animals have mommies and every mommy is different. What makes your mommy special? Learning Experience:I would give the children printed copies off all the mommies and babies in the story and have the children match the mommy with the baby.

    A cute enough book that presents many different animals and usually an adjective that describes the animal. Sometimes an action is highlighted. It all rhymes.The illustrations are nice. This is a book to use with students to teach adjective use that doesn't follow adjective-noun. Mommy nice, helps the student identify the word that describes the noun, even if it doesn't follow the predictable pattern we use.

    I love Jane Chapman's illustrations, especially the two-page spread at the end showing all the mommies and babies. Adults will see the emotional closeness that parents and children share. I like that the illustrations include the life stages of the animals. The lifelike, colorful photos will capture infants' and toddlers' attention. An added bonus would be cuddling in their parents' arms. This is a good bedtime read.

    This was read at story time. It was cute how it showed all types of animals with their mothers. It reminded me of Dinosaur Roar because of the short sentences that describe. Its cool for showing that all types of animals have mothers, even the fierce ones. You could probably use it metaphorically to show that there are all types of families.

    This was a strange book. First, I think our library copy was missing a page at the beginning. Second, the words were strange and lacking. I did enjoy seeing all the different animals. It's a good book to use for young children learning their animals and animal sounds. But as an actual story book, it wasn't up to par.

    The book was simple and very quick read. I liked the pictures and all of the different animals. It would be a nice book for beginning readers, but beyond that, I'm not sure how to use it. It was simple and repetitive and that will help beginning readers and ELL students.

    Filled with beautiful animal illustrations and fun fonts (draw attention to adjectives), this book compares animal moms. A good vocabulary opportunity because some adjectives may be unfamiliar, especially to preschoolers.

    Beautiful animal illustrations. I chose it because tigers are my favorite animal and they were on the cover. :) it was so cute and it would be a great read aloud to get the kids to mimic the noises each mommy makes! Such a good, simple read.

    I really like this book! The way Mommy reads this book and acts out the story makes it really fun to read!

    Very cute, perfect for storytime or read aloud for fairly young children.

    Minimal text and large, humorous and lively animal illustrations make this a great book for toddlers.

    A simple animal mother book. I got it out since I had toddlers for PJ story time tonight.

    Mothers and children of all sorts share this story of different kinds of mothers. Told in rhyme, this book is best for babies and/or toddlers.

    A great one to read around Mother's Day, or to create "Mommy Mine" books or poems (to give as gifts, of course!)

    Summary: Whether it is by croak, flutter, or fur, all children claim their mothers as their own.Beautiful illustrations.
