Please Pick Me Up, Mama!

Please Pick Me Up, Mama!

Illustrated by: Robin Luebs
For Ages: 3 - 5
Whether she’s up or down, whirling or twirling, dressing or bathing, snacking or snoozing, the busy raccoon in this story enjoys each moment of the day. But like many toddlers, she can’t decide if she’d rather explore on her own or climb back into her mama’s arms. Thank goodness Mama Raccoon loves to snuggle. With a lively, rhyming text and lush illustrations, this book is just right for the scores of little ones who waver between wanting to be carried by a grown-up and yearning to toddle about on their own two feet.
