This timeless, well-loved story, now illustrated in luminous full color, captures the warmth of a universal childhood experience. This will make a great keepsake for your children as they can pass it to their children. Ages 2-7
Scott's well-loved story sensitively captures the cozy warmth of a universal childhood experience, portrayed in an Eskimo setting. Michael loves cuddling in the rocking chair with his mother and his favorite toys. When his baby sister wants to join in, Michael learns that there's enough room--on Mother's lap and in her heart--for all. Full color.
Ann Herbert Scott describes herself as "a transplanted Easterner who has come to love the wide skies and far mountain ranges of the West." She is the author of SAM, ON MOTHER'S LAP, and several other picture books. She lives Benicia, California.
"Sitting on his mother's lap, a young Eskimo boy cheerfully gathers his belongings until he, some toys, his puppy, and a blanket are all crowded together in the rocking chair. When his baby sister cries, the boy claims there is no room for her, but Mother proves him wrong, and the threesome settle comfortably in the chair. Soft illustrations depict a cozy scene and a loving family." -- Copyright © 1992 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
