Babies Bond highlights the magical relationship between mammal mothers and their offspring. Graceful watercolor illustrations accompany tender haiku poems, followed by four pages of informative animal fun facts. This picture book, for children ages 2 to ten years, is a wonderful learning tool and a gentle introduction to haiku poetry.
“Another wonderful book by children’s author Phoebe Fox! Babies Bond celebrates the unique connection moms have with their babies. The haiku narrative is simple enough for the youngest child, yet poetic and descriptive, allowing the adult reader to enjoy the beautiful words that accompany the lovely watercolor illustrations. Fun facts included at the end are a great way to learn even more about animal babies. A blue whale calf drinks over fifty gallons of its mother’s milk per day! No doubt Babies Bond will become a treasured part of your book collection, one to be passed on to future generations.”
