Mama’s Day with Little Gray

Aimee Reid, illus. by Laura J. Bryant. Random, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-449-81083-5
In Reid’s debut children’s book, as a mother elephant and her calf stroll through the grasslands, Little Gray imagines the two of them switching places. “‘If I grew up and you were my calf.... I’d spend every day with you,” he says. “I would be your calf and stay right by your side,” his mother responds. Bryant’s dewy, pastel palette fills the landscape as the elephants saunter along, acting out each of the scenarios that the calf entertains. “ ‘I could show you how to make mud,’ said Little Gray. ‘I know you’d be a good teacher,’ Mama said.” An abundantly sweet depiction of a child’s gentle nudging for assurance. Ages 2–5. Author’s agent: Jill Corcoran, Jill Corcoran Literary Agency. (Apr.)
