Happy Mamas is a lyrical read-aloud that pays tribute to the universal joys of mothering in the animal and human kingdoms. Charming illustrations by Ruth E. Harper depict all the activities that bring joy to a mother and her baby over the course of a day: feeding her little ones bundles of bamboo shoots, teaching her calf how to trumpet loud a jungle cheer, watching her chicks fly from the nest, singing a serenade to the man in the moon, or crooning owly lullabies through the deep dark woods. Readers will delight in this happy romp through forest, field, jungle, and beyond, as they see how universal a mother’s love can be.
