Mommy, Where Are You? by Leonid Gore, Ages 2-5

9781416955054Ozzy wakes up one morning and can’t find his mommy anywhere! He races off on a frantic search. Is she behind the fence? In the flowers? Up in the tree? Swimming in the lake? No, no, no! Ozzy works himself into a wild tizzy only to discover Mommy in the most obvious of places.

Leonid Gore’s story is simple, punctuated by Ozzy’s refrain of  “there you are!” as he repeatedly mistakes various woodland plants and animals for Mommy. The unique illustrations are sure to draw young adventurers into the story, using broad, colorful brushstrokes and liftable flaps to create a lush setting for the little mouse family. This is an excellent “snuggle-time” story for mommies and little ones to enjoy together!
