I Love My Mommy Because ...
Laurel Porter-Gaylord. Dutton Books, $7.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-525-44625-5
In keeping with the spirit of the season, animals and their offspring feature in four titles released just in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day. In I Love My Mommy Because... and I Love My Daddy Because... , both by Laurel Porter-Gaylord, parents give their babies ample reasons to be loved: ""She tucks me in"" (a kangaroo pats the joey in her pouch); ""He makes me laugh"" (a father chimpanzee engages in some monkey business). Ashley Wolff's mostly realistic, but always adorable animal portraits will have readers cooing.
