Editorial Reviews

"A classic, re-illustrated with finesse."

Booklist, ALA

"Sitting on his mother’s lap, a young Eskimo boy 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."

Horn Book

"An update of the 1972 collaboration. . . . The universality of all- encompassing maternal love transcends ethnicity and still rings true in the update, but Coalson’s realistic warm illustrations give On Mother’s Lap revitalized energy to reach a new generation of youngsters. . . . This one is a top choice."

School Library Journal, Starred
