Product Details


Raschka (The Magic Flute) captures the intimacy between mother and infant with animated watercolors that celebrate imitative play…Deceptively simple, this small-scale study highlights the way that this kind of universal play builds trust and warmth between the generations.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In this artfully composed picture book, Raschka gets to the emotional core of the relationship between a young child and a trusted adult…This everyday drama should resonate with the intended audience, who will likely find comfort in watching the events from the distance a book offers. Both characters satisfyingly acknowledge their audience in the end, where Baby—now reunited on the same page as Mama—waves safely from her arms. Be prepared for pleas of “Again, again!”
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Simple clothing, the empty white background, and uncluttered pages give the book a universal quality, making it appealing to the youngest readers.

A mother and child interact in familiar ways in Raschka’s latest, which uses unique formatting to stand out from the crowd.
