The headline says it all: this book is cute, it has attractive illustrations, and it's a amazing length considering the age it's most-likely best for. A lot of various animals are featured, each with a mom and a cute baby, there is a amazing amount of rhyming in the book without it being 's a very sweet, colourful book that is excellent for so a lot of occasions. All moms should have a small book like this to read to their babies.
...just like a Popsicle on a summer's eve or hot cocoa on a winter's night. Easy rhyme and stylized illustrations create it a fast small comfort at the end of a busy day. Although it is a short read, the dozens of animal mom and babies can draw you back in to talk about all the various monsters and how they cuddle their small ones. Would be nice to place in a bonus basket for a fresh mom with some stuffed animals!
Mama Burks is one highly favored and blessed lady! My mom and I just love to listen to her attractive voice glorifying the Lord. One time at Lowe's near Mom's we were loading up perennials in the Jeep and had ALL the windows begin so EVERYONE could hear Mama Burk's sanctified singing! Several people walked by and smiled, some drove by with a thumbs up and a honk. Once you hear this woman sing, you'll be singing right along with her. What a blessing!
The pictures are absolutely perfect, filled with baby and mama animals of a lot of types. Text can be read quickly, which is amazing for little attention spans. Even without someone reading to them, children will like looking at the pictures. Amazing kindle format too - easily read on a phone.
Moma's Boys. Bloody Mama is directed by Roger Corman and written by Don Peters and Robert Thom. It stars Shelley Winters, Bruce Dern, Don Stroud, Robert De Niro, Diane Varsi, Robert Walden and Pat Hingle. Melody is by Don Randi and cinematography by John A. Alonzo. Story is loosely based on the infamous Kate "Ma" Barker, who along with her sons would cause criminal carnage wherever they went. "I told my boys to just rob banks and stay out of trouble" Very much coming off like the @#$%!&? son of Bonnie and Clyde, Bloody Mama finds Roger Corman on devilish form. He somehow manages to make violence that cuts hard, and yet there's still a pantomime vibe to things. The characters range from a angry matriarch who is a deathgasm addict - to a psychopath - a sadist - a submissive homosexual - a junkie torturer - and a hapless girlfriend, is it any wonder there's murder, robbery and seedy shenanigans going on?! Hell the pic even begins with incestuous rape! Kiss me Kate! It's all very chaotic at times, led by a blunderbuss turn from Winters, but just when you think it's going out of control to the point of no return, Corman and his cast pull it back on track. It's often thrilling and unnerving, and with Corman blending newsreel footage of the era with the fact the pic is filmed on zone in Arkansas, there's an earthy docu style feel to the tale - even if as a history lesson it's hokey at best. Not everybody's idea of enjoyment but from that chilling opening to the blood and thunder of the finale, Bloody Mama holds court with shifty glee. 7.5/10
Mama Said created me begin to look at Rock and Roll a whole fresh way. Being a person who prefers R&B, Jazz and Hip-Hop, I was sort of close-minded to Rock and Roll. Lenny changed all of that with his release of Allow Love Rule. I was still in denial though because I thought that his "Freshman Effort" was a fluke. Boy, was I wrong!!! The same guy who introduced me to Allow Allow Rule just happened to pop in this CD and my ears instantly perked up because I recognized the voice as the same as the one on Allow Love Rule. After listening intently to the first few songs and the honesty in his lyrics as well as his superior musical ability, I had no choice but to conclude that this guy was going to be around for a while so I might as well obtain use to buying his material. He single-handedly changed my view on Rock and Roll. If Allow Love Rule was an awesome Freshman Effort, Mama Said far surpassed that sending his status into Classic Territory... From beginning to end, Mama Said is a 5-Star Classic...
One of the sweetest, kindest rhyming books about Moms I've ever read. On each page is a fresh animal. The rhyme is so amazing I found myself reading it out loud to have fun the rhythm . The illustrations are wonderful, some of the best I've seen in a children's picture book. Well done to both author and illustrator. Magical!
This is a truly amazing recording by Lenny Kravitz. Mama Said is just phenomenal. Every track on this cd is incredible. I think after this album, Lenny's sound really started to change. Although I have fun his more latest recordings, I search his earlier work far superior to anything he's produced more recently. His earlier sound can only be described as raw, retro, soulful, funky, groovy and much various than anything that was being recorded at that time. I search Lenny Kravitz to be a truly unique, and original recording artist, and think his earlier work is a real testament to that statement.
My son just started school and has had a really hard time when it comes to leaving me in the mornings. He really enjoys Llama Llama books, so this seemed like the excellent book for us to have. (I didn’t read any reviews before buying either because we already have so a lot of Llama Llama books that we enjoy.)The book starts out talking about Llama Llama’s morning routine, heading/getting to school, and Mama Llama leaves... Then the book takes a turn and, to me, becomes negative. One page that really threw me off says “Reading stories on the rug, children are cuddled, sitting snug. Would the llama like to look? Llama llama hates that book.” I want I was paying closer attention before I read “hate” to my son. Next in the book, Llama Llama starts missing Mama and starts crying at lunch while all the other classmates stare at him and tell him “please don’t fuss, play with us.” (At this point of the book, my son literally starts crying and talking about how he misses me too.) Then the teacher tells Llama that “when the day is through, she will come right back to you.” And for the rest of the book he is satisfied and loves school from then on...... that’s just not how it works! The book really seems to focus on the NEGATIVE PARTS of leaving Mama and shows Llama Llama as the ONLY KID who is scared/shy/lonely/crying. (Maybe I need to edit the book and add a child who feels the same method that Llama Llama does, they become friends, and they adjust to school instead of just instantly loving it.)My son likes Llama Llama, but I’m really debating on wether to hold the book or not. I WOULDN’T RECOMMEND this book.
I want I would have had this book sooner, when my son started day care, but he'll be starting nursery school next year so this book will be helpful. This book describes what children go to on their first day (sometimes first week or month) at school. It helps to validate feelings kids have and helps them realize they aren't alone. The best part is that mama always comes back. I love the illustrations in these books.
I love this game! I've been wanting to search a fun cooking android game with multiple recipes and ingredients where they don't expire if you can't check it often enough! the characters are cute and the mini android game is also fun! highly recommend this android game if you love cooking games! Also, you can't obtain bored because of all the meal festivals introducing fresh challenges and recipes!
Adorable book about a easy conversation between a son and a mother. The drawings are amazingly bright and fun. My 15 month old son loves to bring me this book from his bookshelf and point at all the unbelievable pictures. I honestly can’t wait for the next books from this author and this artist!!! Also very satisfied my son has a book he can relate to, there aren’t enough Asian kids books out but I’m so glad Eunice Kang is breaking that! Bravo!
This book was fantastic! I love how detailed and creative the pictures are. I am a mom of three children and they loved being able to identify their Asian heritage throughout the book. I am also a School Director and it was such a huge hit with preschool and elementary aged children. The kids could similar to the story as well as the adults. It was amazing to see how satisfied the kids were and the questions they had as they were reading. It’s so nice to see Asian culture represented in children’s book. Highly recommended!
We bought the DADA book ver a while back for our first child. I thought it would be the same concept with the MAMA book. But this book is hilarious! The DADA book is where the dad hold wanting to teach the child to say dada first. In the MAMA book, the mama tries to teach the child fresh words but all the child can gather is calling for mama. hilariously accurate.
I liked the book, but having paper pages instead of board pages was a really not good choice! This is a book for babies/young toddlers who are learning to talk. They are not ready for paper pages on books. My almost 1.5 year old has already ripped some of the pages out. 🙁
My 6 month old daughter absolutely loves these books. I'm glad I got them for her. She had previously been grabbing and playing with paper and my son had been given these when he was younger but never really liked them. I figured with the method my daughter was playing with paper she'd probably have fun these more and I was right. I will probably obtain some more for her.
My husband has been a volunteer at the local elementary school for 8 years and reads weekly to K and 1st grade...He has previously borrowed this book from the public library and decided it is time to his own copy to ensure that he has it when needed. The year always begins with this book as the children love it ...they never wish to stop singing the verses in the book as well as the ones they create, such as, "Mama don't let no nose picking around here......"
I wanted a book that would support me teach my children the importance of staying close when we are out. This book has potential to be really amazing but fell short. It can still be a amazing conversation starter, but I expected more. The baby giraffe ignores his mother's warnings and seems to survive by sheer luck and ignorance. The book seemed to convey that it is OK to disobey because nothing poor will happen. I didn't wish a horror story, but I didn't expect something completely watered down and void of a lesson either. My children enjoyed the pictures and that it is about a giraffe.
It's a shame there isn't a single-disc compilation of Westbound-era Funkadelic available, but this collection of all their A & B sides is a marvelous thing. A small filler (a couple of B sides) can't be avoided, but all the classics are here :"I'll Bet You", "I Got a Thing...", "Music for My Mother", and so on. Extensive notes in the booklet round out an indespensible collection for fans of hard funk or guitar rock.
This is melody that from its first notes grabs your soul and shakes you. This is the ultimate expression of interplay between harmonica, guitar, and vocals. I search it awesome that Fred and Johnny didn't have to rehearse. I can think of no other album where two musicians exhibit such an understanding of eachother's playing. Everytime I listen to this album I'm sent into a blues-induced trance. Nothing in the globe exists except for the wailing harmonica and slide, the rocking rhythm of the drone strings. If this melody doesn't create you move your hips, then (in the words of Louis Jordan): Jack, you dead.
I bought this cookbook for myself, at a school book fair I ran in 1995. I love to cook for family and friends, and I'm told by everyone that I cook very well, despite no formal training. So, I knew this one would be a hit, at first glance. It had several recipes in it that I already made, and a lot of others I always wanted to learn. It has so a lot of unbelievable daily dishes, and Jewish holiday unique dishes too (which I create even when it's not a holiday). As a effect it is the most used cookbook in my home. I often obtain requests from mates and family for my recipes, after I've served them up, so I've been sharing a lot of of these for years. When my oldest daughter (I have two) moved away during college and got her first apartment, she started asking for recipes. The first thing I did was to her 3 cookbooks... The Joy of Cooking, The Settlement House Cookbook, and Mama Leah's Jewish Kitchen. Now she's 28 and married herself. When we all obtain together now, everyone almost always request dishes from Mama Leah's.
These are awesome small books that every baby should have. My 7 month old LOVES them! The first one was a bonus that she's been playing with since she was about 4 months old. She has chewed, crumpled, drooled, and tugged at this book nearly every day for 3 months and it's STILL whole! I ordered the Jungle Rumble and Mama and Baby editions to add to her collection. Aside from how wonderfully they keep up to your baby's antics, the pictures are beautiful! They have interesting animals, bugs, and scenes with bright, bold, and rich color. If you're on the fence allow this review push you over to buying! $5 is SO for a book your baby can't destroy! One other notable attribute is their ease of use for younger babies. I found that board books while very sturdy, are not as simple for my daughter to manipulate at her age. I think she likes these books so much because she can handle it easily without my help.
This book is a amazing combination of modern and classic. The art and format have a comic book feel, giving it that modern appeal. But it also has a classic children's book feel to it, with the repeating hook of "What If." It has a easy concept, which is key for toddlers and young children. I've spent my career teaching preschoolers, and also served as an early childhood literacy consultant for Head Start, so I consider myself a children's book "connoisseur."My son, who is a teenager, says he remembers what kind of children's books grabbed him when he was younger, and this book is definitely that kind of book. In his words, the author really understands kids and their point of view. He also said he's already waiting for the sequel!We also loved the illustrations! Very cute and definitely appealing to children!
What an adorable story and a amazing example of how to answer to children and their outrageous questions! I love that the author cultivates curiosity in a reassuring and loving way. Those tender moments in parenthood have been captured here in those lovely story. Highly recommend.
As a father of three, I have been reading books for them, and with them over the latest decade. I had an opportunity to read this book with my children and they truly enjoyed reading the book. It brings curiosity of a kid and leads into father & son / father & daughter discussion while reading the book. I truly recommend this book if you are a parent with young child.
This is such a cute book! Lots of changing vocabulary with animal names and yet a nice repetitive phrase your baby/kiddo can hear and eventually be able to say when reading the book. I think this is various enough from the DADA book. If you liked the other book, this is a must!My baby loves to look at the pictures of this book. I love the ending and beginning of this book...”everything is mama according to you...” “but then one day you’ll learn you are everything to mama.”
