Just in time to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week! “Mama’s Milk” is a sweet rhyming book about nursing, written by Michael Elson Ross and illustrated by Ashley Wolf. After you listen to this book, you could try making a comparison chart. At the top of your paper (you’ll need a big piece!), write the names of all the mammals pictured in the book (make sure to include humans). Then, on the left side of your paper, list the mammals’ various qualities (for example: has fur, swims under water, lives in a tree, etc.). You may be surprised how much these animals have in common (or not)!
