• A tender look at humans and animals breast-feeding in their natural habitats.
• Promotes infant health and attachment parenting.

"There's nothing more natural than a baby nursing from its mother, and this theme serves as the inspiration for a moving tale that celebrates the miracle of breastfeeding. . . An ode to all things maternal."
"This cozy offering will be welcomed by parents who want to share the joy and naturalness of breastfeeding with their children."
