MOMMY, BABY AND ME, a new picture book by Linda Elovitz Marshall, published this month with Peter Pauper Press. This sweet story is gathering equally nice reviews!
A dog’s world is turned upside-down when his owner brings home a new baby. How will the pooch adjust to the noisy, smelly, mostly furless creature who is hogging all the attention?
“Simple and sweet prose…and it also nicely stands in for many young readers/listeners who may have become new older siblings themselves…the narrator is particularly expressive and winsome.” —Kirkus Reviews
Publishers Weekly calls the story “poignant” and says that “Uneasy new siblings should take to heart the message that it gets better.”
“Dog stories always have strong appeal, and this one does not disappoint.” —Booklist
Linda E. Marshall recalls how her first puppy, a black-and-white mutt, reacted when she brought home her first baby. He was not exactly a happy camper. Luckily though, they ended up being the best of friends. Linda lives with her husband on a farm in the Hudson River Valley.
