    1. Shari on said:

      Love the Carle artwork, but mourn the missed opportunity to teach the names of young animals. It needs to be in the book text, not just the afterword.

    2. Victoria on said:

      4 stars for helping Ian figure out that "yes" and "no" are two different answers.

    3. Melissa on said:

      The colors in this book is catching to the eye. I enjoyed reading it to my little ones when they were small. It introduces different animals and their moms. This book is written with simple loving language that is great for the little in anyone's lives.

      Parents - don't do it to yourself, avoid this book if at all possible.Mindnumbingly boring text - the same question and answer 12 times over. The illustrations are typical Eric Carle - I'm not a fan of his illustrative style, but many other people love it.The final page gives a list of the names of babies, parents and groups of the animals featured in the book. I remember loving these factoids when I was a child, but who can be bothered learning all the terms of venery when your an adult (the on [...]

      This is a simple book that asks readers a question every other page, following the format of the title. A different animal is substituted each time and a rhyme scheme is developed to keep the rhythm of the book flowing along. The book ends by tying the question back to the reader by saying “YES! YES! Of course they do. Animal mothers love their babies just as yours loves you”. This predictable format is what makes this a picture book and it is very easy for small children to follow along.Thi [...]

      My 18-month old son LOVES this book. The repetition gets old kinda quick for adults, but toddlers love it, and that's enough for me to continue to read it to him and not hide it behind the bookshelf. Nodding "yes" was one of the first responses my son learned to give, and he was really excited that he knew what was coming in the book- he could nod that yes, whatever animal does have a mother, too. He would get very excited about that. I also like the little glossary in the back of the names for [...]

      MART - interesting experience, with my 1st grade reader. Since I don't read Spanish, I told him we'd have to make up a story to go along with the pictures. He liked the animals that seem the strongest and most fierce. Making up a story with him was fun. We alternated pages. (He didn't believe it was about mother animals - even when I showed him the recognizable words.)

    8. BeaCharmed on said:

      A little too long, it has nice pictures and introduces children to the concept that animals are part of families too.

    9. Sue Winson on said:

      Reading this book verbatim is a pain. The texts are repetitive “does a Lion have a mother too? Yes! A Lion has a mother. Just like me and you”. “Does a giraffe have a mother too…” It gets a bit horrifyingly boring when we got to the 5th animals, and my heart sank when I realized there were still 6 more animals to go!20-month old little-AJ didn’t seem to mind too much about the repetition (although mummy has been creating varied texts for this book just to rescue myself from boredom- [...]

    10. Charles on said:

      The answer to the title is obvious but also on the first page. Then a similar question is asked on every page with, of course, the same results. In fact, all of the animals "discussed" are mammals with the exception of two birds. Where are the insects? Where are the reptiles? Where are the fish? The mollusks? Apparently they aren't good enough to make it into this book so we'll never know if they too have mothers. Clearly some animals are indeed more equal than other animals.At least Carle's ill [...]

      Genre: Contemporary realistic fictionGrade: Pre-k-1The repetition in this book is great for young children and early readers. Young children will love answering the question on every page asking if the animals have a mother. Eric Carle shows the love between mothers and their children through animals and people in this book. On the last page of the book, it gives information about each animal. This is a great source for a discussion after reading.

    12. Gina Miller on said:

      I used this book for a baby and toddler story time. The children loved the colors at which Eric Carle is truly a master. In addition, the repetitive verse on each page made it easy for the toddlers to predict what was coming next. Since each page used the word, "Yes!", we taught the children the sign for "yes". By the end of the book, most of the little ones were moving their tiny fists up and down. This is an excellent adult/ toddler lap story.

    13. Vivian on said:

      I find that children love to be involved with stories whenever possible. When sharing this book you can invite them to guess the animal that will appear on the next page, giving clues to help. You can invite them to name the animal (without the guessing) when they see the picture. You can invite them to make the animal's sound. You can stand up and make actions that the animal might make. You can invite them to give a thumbs up as they say YES!, which is repeated with each animal.

    14. Kristin on said:

      Very repetitive. The last page includes names of the baby animals, etc. The book was boring without that info in the text itself. I prefer when an author includes factoids in smaller print that I can choose to read or not in the course of the story.

    15. Dana Franklin on said:

      This book is great because it shows the love between the mother and the kangaroo. Kangaroos have mothers as well as everyone else and they show how much their mother loves you.

    16. Kelly on said:

      Typical (or, rather, reliable) Carle illustrations and repetition in this nice book.

    17. Jessica Dwyer on said:

      While I personally found it to be a boring read, young children would be delighted to answer the questions each page brings. Eric Carle's illustrations are always beautiful.

    18. Marissa Dunbar on said:

      I did not enjoy this book at all, it was extremely repetitive and all it did was change animals and ask if they had mothers. I would not read this to my students at all, I do not recommend!

    19. Brittany Mangum on said:

      This teaches kids about animals, and that all of them have mothers, and how even though animals are different, they are alike in similar ways. (FICTION)

    20. Miss Sarah on said:

      Each page features an animal and asks if they have a mother. I used this for big and little opposites and it went great. kids love asking and answering the question. toddler and up

    21. Vicki on said:

      A very repetitive book, that young ones should enjoy about animal babies and their mothers.Typical lovely Eric Carle illustrations.

    22. Kate Sanders on said:

      I like this book because it’s simple. Carle always has flowing words in his book and the last page is my favorite. The whole book talks about animals having mothers that love them just like us.

      Booklist (Vol. 96, No. 9/10 (January 1, 2000))Ages 4-6. Almost no author/illustrator over the past 30 years has played a more prominent role in the literary lives of preschoolers than Eric Carle. His large, inviting graphic animals have consistently delighted and taught children during early stages of development. This latest effort is no exception. The structure is appropriately simple. First, the question, "Does a Kangaroo have a mother, too?" followed on the next page by the answer, "Yes! A K [...]

    24. Christy on said:

      Of course they do—just like me and you! From baby kangaroos, called joeys, to baby elephants, called calfs, every kind of animal has a mother. Inside this playful and colorful book you will see all sorts of different babies with their mothers, all with one thing in common: Their mothers love them very, very much—just like your mother loves you! Come right in and meet the family—the animal family, that is—in words and pictures by Eric Carle

    25. Rachel on said:

      Although the story is very clear and easy to understand, I find it's content to be boring. I mean it's cute that we get to find out that every animal listed has a mother and its sweet to know that the mother loves the baby animal but the repetition of the same question that only swapped out the animal seemed at lot more geared toward very young children who are not quite ready to start reading, just listening.

    26. Kristin Gardner on said:

      This author has amazing illustrations from previous books I have read and this book has great illustrations as well. However, that is the only great thing about this book. The story pretty much goes through different animals asking," do they have a mother?" The story has no plot or set character. I think young children might like this story for the illustrations but other than that, there is no purpose to reading this book.

    27. Kristi Harris on said:

      In this story, it allows children to see that animals can have a mother just like them. The words are very simple and short. I think this would be a great book for early readers.

    28. English 212 on said:

      This book has animals in it which makes it easier for children to understand. There is not really a life lesson in this, but it tells us that all animals have mothers. At the back of the book however, it has all the names of the animals, babies, mother, fathers, and what a grouping of them is called, which is very informative for those who want to explore deeper, but is not on the pages, making it too much information for a small child who wants to look at the beautiful art and hear the same gro [...]
