Mama Outside, Mama Inside
Dianna Hutts Aston, Susan Gaber
(Henry Holt and Co. (BYR), April 4, 2006)
The perfect book for Mother's Day! A mother has lots of preparation to do when expecting a baby--whether she's a bird weaving a nest in the tree outside, or a woman setting up a nursery inside her home. In this heartwarming picture book, two mothers share a common love of their babies, until one day it's time for Mama Outside to follow her babies into the sky and fly away. Dianna Hutts Aston details the experience of motherhood in lyrical prose, and Susan Gaber's illustrations beautifully render the inside and outside lives of two new mothers.
