9780060295097: My Mother's Voice

My mother calls me
from darkness to light. . . .
I wrap her words around me,
warm with good wishes
for the day to come.

Joanne Ryder's heartwarming text and Peter Catalanotto's glowing art celebrate the tender, everyday moments shared between a mother and daughter. In every welcome and whisper, laugh and farewell, the ever-changing tones of a mother's voice express a gift a daughter can treasure -- her mother's constant love.

About the Author:

Joanne Ryder has always loved pandas, starting with the very first small panda toy she had as a child. She has continued to be fascinatd by these rare and wonderful animals throughout her career as a writer. She is the award-winning author of numerous picture books, including A Pair of Polar Bears: Twin Cubs Find a Home at the San Diego Zoo; Little Panda: The World Welcomes Hua Mei at the San Diego Zoo; My Mother's Voice; My Father's Hands; Big Bear Ball; and Wild Birds. She lives in Pacific Grove, California, with her husband, Laurence Yep, who is also an author.



A talented visual storyteller, Peter Catalanotto sets the mood with his rich, warm colors and inviting perspectives. His poignant illustrations have graced picture books by award-winning authors such as Cynthia Rylant and George Ella Lyon. Peter Catalanotto lives with his wife and daughter in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. In this companion to Ryder's equally loving My Father's Hands (1994), a young narrator pays tribute to her (single) mom by appreciating the voice that "calls me from darkness to light" in the morning, into the house at nightfall, and, in between, offers conversation, support, consolation, and comfort. Depicting parent and child with his usual liquid realism, Catalanotto dresses them informally and poses them in bright domestic settings, capped by an unforgettable image of parent and child standing back to back in front of the sink and belting out a duet into spoon "microphones." Mother is a bit two-dimensional (aside from one pensive moment, her equanimity never wavers), but Ryder's lyrical tone never turns syrupy, and her story will strike a responsive chord in many children. This will work well alongside Kathryn Lasky's Mommy's Hands (2002). John Peters
