Mama’s Milk

mamasmilk.jpgLaurel has long been a breastfeeding advocate (she avidly nursed for a year, and loves asking questions about nursing or seeing other babies feed), so it’s no wonder she's a fan of Michael Elsohn Ross’s new Mama's Milk. With gentle rhyming text and cozy illustrations, Mama’s Milk realistically and tastefully depicts how humans and animals nurse their offspring. Each picture labels mom and baby animal pairs (e.g., platypus & puggles) and the book concludes with additional nursing facts to accompany each page. A great pick for moms looking for a way to explain breastfeeding to an older sibling, we also dig that this book is offered in a Spanish/English edition.
