Storytime: Babies on the Go

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 Today we read Babies on the Go

This book may easily become a toddler storytime favourite. A wonderful rhyme that teaches (and shows with beautiful illustrations) how different animal babies get from one place to another and how some animal mothers transport their babies because they are not able to transport themselves. In both cases, the mother is there, lovingly overseeing the child's trek from one place to the next. The book ends by letting children know that human babies and animals babies are transported with love. 

Some of the illustrations are truly adorable: a baby polar bear is gently nudged along by its mother and a baby swan is gracefully tucked and carried under the wing of its mother. A library find that makes great reading for storytime insha'Allaah. I think you will enjoy reading it as much as your child(ren) may enjoy having it read to them...waallaahu a'lam.
