Mama Loves You So by Terry Pierce; illustrated by Simone Shin, 2017
This is one of those board books that will pull on your heart strings as you read it. Using rhyming, lyrical language, the book describes a mother’s love for their child. “Endless as the stars ablaze, deep as morning’s glow, wider than a cloudless sky, Mama loves you so.” The text is perfectly coupled with the soft color pallet of the illustrations highlighting mother and child animal pairings. This will most likely become one of my new go-to books to give as a gift for a baby shower. Sweet, soothing, and just lovely.
