Our book today is Love, Mama by Jeanette Bradley, a darling tribute to the unconditional love between mother and child. Little Kipling the penguin is feeling pretty down. His Mama is on a long sea voyage, and he misses her terribly. Kipling feels better knowing that even if his Mama is far away, her love for him will travel whatever distance is between them to be where he is. Adorable and sweet. The illustrations are charming and sweet, featuring round and cuddly characters in a palette of soft colors, adding to the sentimental vibe of the book.
The length is fine, JJ loves anything with penguins, and well, I always love a book about a mommy and little one.

Mommy, Mama, and Me
In the end, Mama does come home-apparently she was on a big ship fishing? But we don't' know if she will leave again.
And where is Dad during all this? No other parents are mentioned in the text. We only know there is an adult around because on a few pages there is an adult penguin standing beside the baby.
