Mama, Look! (And Papa, Too!)
Award-winning children's author (and friend of Read Between the Lynes) Patricia J. Murphy will be reading and signing her latest picture book Mama, Look! at our March 4th Storytime at 10:30 a.m. Come for what Kirkus Reviews calls "a cheery springboard for small nature lovers to have their own 'Mama, look!' opportunities." Then stay afterward for ways to keep LOOOOOOOOKING!
In Mama, Look!, Patricia J. Murphy collaborates with Caldecott Medalist David Diaz to show how curious baby creatures and their mamas discover the world around them.
When a child notices a grasshopper on a plant while outside with his mother, he exclaims, "Mama, Look " and sets off a series of curious baby creatures noticing other curious baby creatures and pointing them out to their mothers. The human child spots a grasshopper, the grasshopper spots ants, an ant spots butterflies, a butterfly spots frogs, and so on. Told through a combination of the "Mama, Look " refrain and identifying noun (i.e. "Mama, Look Grasshopper."), this simple story is perfect for introducing little ones to the world around them.
