Book - Child
"The furnishings are few in this chilly Eskimo dweling, but when Michael jumps in Mother's lap, the love between them warms the room, as 'back and forth, back and forth, they rock.' Michael runs to get Dolly, then his carved boat, a reindeer blanket and even his pupy: the small rocking chair is full. When Baby cries, Mother insists ther's room for her too, but Michael pouts and hides. All of them end up back in the chair, crowded but cozy; Michael admits, "It feels good." Pastels in earth tones and turquoise create a luminous setting with the captivating faces of the serence mother and her two small children. Though the story is very slight, it makes a reasurring point for little ones, who need to know that a mother's love is an expandable quantity." From Publishers Weekly
