How much does Mommy love her baby? As much as monkeys love bananas and eagles love to soar! And how much does Daddy love his baby? Flip this book and you'll see: as much as bunnies love to bounce and birdies love to sing! In fact, Mommy and Daddy love their baby just as fast, high, and loud as anything can be. Tara Jaye Morrow's charming two-in-one book is matched perfectly with Tiphanie Beeke's delightful illustrations.

PreSchool-This delightfully sentimental concept book is perfect for sharing. Read one way, a mother's love for her child is likened to the way "fishies love the seas, like the monkeys love bananas and the squirrels love the trees." The animal comparisons continue with sliding penguins, giggling hyenas, roaring lions, peeping chicks, and more. When the book is reversed, the whimsical rhymes continue and listeners will hear how Daddy loves his baby "like the leopards love to pounce, like the bumblebees love buzzing and the bunnies love to bounce." Both texts end with the statement that Mommy or Daddy loves baby because it is "the sweetest little, cutest little YOU!" Beeke's watercolor animal creations help keep the sweetness in check. The playful animals are content and friendly (though the snapping gator does have a mischievous gleam). Kittens cuddle, and a mother bear gazes fondly at her sleeping cubs. Cozy domesticity reigns throughout, starting with a toddler in a hooded bathrobe on the title page. This is a striking book, making full use of Beeke's warm palette and creatively fresh perspectives. Preschoolers and their caregivers will find many things to enjoy in this charming picture book.
