Title: Picture books where a mother is featured
Post by: CarrieF on May 14, 2014, 07:27 AM
I'm trying to come up with a list of comp books where the mother is a main or heavily featured character. For example like Chicks Run Wild or Ol' Mama Squirrel. Any suggestions? (esp. recent books) Thanks!

BABY BEAR SEES BLUE and I WANNA IGUANA come to mind. I like the two you mentioned.

An old classic would be A CHAIR FOR MY MOTHER.

I guess NO, DAVID fits the bill, since the mom does all the talking. And NO NAP! YES NAP! is soon-to-be-released.

Oh, and the LLAMA LLAMA books.

Mara, I love that you wrote "creepy" after that title. LOL.

ARE YOU MY MOTHER? by P D Eastman. (Mother is a main character and although unseen for most of it, is fundamental to story)
