Celebrate the love between mother and child in this new board book edition of the sweetest story of all!

One by one, baby animals are born on the farm. Frolicking barnyard babies put smiles of love on their mothers' faces, and each time a new animal is born, another mother yearns for one of her very own. When a new human mom shows off her own baby, it's the sweetest one of all . . . because it's her very own.

A warm-hearted story with gently humourous rhymes, this sturdy board book is the perfect gift for a new baby's bookshelf.
