Mother’s Day Giveaway CLOSED

Just in time for Mother’s Day, a new book captures the love a mother feels for her children in a way even the youngest listeners will understand. Stay Close to Mama by Tony Buzzeo is about a curious young giraffe named Twiga (which means “giraffe” in Swahili) whose adventures lead him close to danger- a struggle on the “squishy, slippery shore” and a near brush with a hungry crocodile, for instance.  All the while, his mother is there, balancing her worry for his well-being with the knowledge she can’t coddle him forever.  The story is a metaphor for all loving mothers and the feelings they have for their children.

With beautiful illustrations by Mike Wohnoutka, this large, hardcover picture book published by Disney will be a mainstay in yIour family’s library. Younger children will enjoy the pictures and lulling language, while children 5-8 will want to read it themselves.  Parents will never tire of sharing its message either.

One copy of the book will be sent to a lucky winner just in time for Mother’s Day.
