The worldwide leader in animal photography, National Geographic brings us Mother's Love: Inspiring True Stories From the Animal Kingdom, a collection of the most moving and intimate portraits of animal mothers and their babies. Each photograph shows animal moms as they nurture, play, teach, and protect their young. Sprinkled throughout are inspirational quotes ("All I am I owe to my angel mother." -Abraham Lincoln) and unbelievable true stories of maternal heroism--like the mother duck from Vancouver who persuaded a human passerby to rescue her ducklings from a storm drain.
Page after page will touch your heart and remind us all of the valuable roles that mothers play--both in the wild and at home. A perfect gift for any budget, Mother's Love is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day, a new arrival, or any old day to show your mom how much you care.
