I recently read a really sweet book called Mama's Milk by Michael Elsohn Ross (he has a background as a naturalist and environmental educator). When it's time to nurse, there are many animals who will snuggle with their mama and eat, as they know mama's milk is the best. The darling illustrations beautifuly show the love between mama and animal infant. The book then concludes with a two-page informational spread which includes nursing facts on how long the animals in the book will nurse. This is a delightful book for youngsters who want to know more about baby animals and how nursing is a fact of life among newborns.
