Product Description

Michael's favorite place to be is on Mother's lap, cuddled close in her arms in the big rocking chair. It's even cozier when he brings Boat, Dolly, and Puppy to snuggle with him in his reindeer blanket. But what happens when Michael's baby sister begins to cry? 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

Editorial Reviews

"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.
