When a little boy and his mom go camping, mini-disasters abound, and there are lots of opportunities for Mom to step in and fix everything. But instead, with a loving touch, this mommy shows her child ways to do things for himself, going far to encourage her child’s independence. And there is still plenty of opportunity for snuggling under the stars.
This warm and humorous testament to all the loving things a supportive mom does each day is every bit as heartwarming as its predecessor and is sure to become a favorite for families everywhere.
In this companion to Because Your Daddy Loves You, a mother teaches her son self-reliance during a camping trip. "When you have to cross the stream, and the log looks skinny and wobbly, your mommy could say, Don't worry, I'll take you across. But she doesn't. She goes over first to show you how. And then you follow, all by yourself." After they put up the tent and roast marshmallows, the boy's mother tucks him in and assures him of her love. With tenderness and gentle humor, Alley's light-filled ink, watercolor, and acrylic illustrations capture the bond between mother and son. Ages 4 8.
