There is a lot we can learn from animals- the protectiveness of mother lion, or the resilience of the spider, or the mamma tribe of elephants.
One of the first relationships a child has, is with his/her parent. One of the first emotions a child/ new parent feels is love. How about their first book combining these two themes? Apart from the knowledge of other living creatures we share the world with, the books draw attention to the different forms of love, that exist in the parent - child relationship.
This is a tribute to mothers everywhere, and the motherhood instinct that connects us to our animal brothers and sisters.
