Cuddle up and celebrate love in this picture book that shines a spotlight on LGBTQ+ moms!
“A hug from Mommy, warm and tight.
A squeeze from Mama feels just right.
This is how my mommies say,
‘We love you, baby, night and day!”’
Two mommies share a perfect day with their little one in this joyful picture book! From visiting animals on a farm and sharing a car ride sing-along, to a sudsy bath-time and bedtime snuggles galore, love and warmth beam out of every page. Rhyming, rhythmic text from author Anna Membrino is the perfect storytime read-aloud, paired alongside luminous, glowing illustrations from artist Joy Hwang Ruiz. With the lyrical sweetness of favorites like I Love You Through and Through and Guess How Much I Love You, this picture book is the perfect way to celebrate love for LGBTQ+ families!
A just-right gift for new parents, Mothers' Day, baby showers, birthdays, and more.
