Book Review and Giveaway: Loon Baby. Ends Dec 19th
Loon Baby by Molly Beth Griffin illustrated by Anne Hunter
Atop the rippling waves— the breeze ruffling his fluff— Loon Baby waits, alone, and wonders: Will his mother ever come back?
My Review: It was time for dinner so Mama Loon took baby Loon to the middle of the lake so she can look for dinner for him. While she dove into the lake he waited for his mother to return. Baby Loon started to worry when his mother did not show up and she has never gone this long before. “He stuck his head under the cool waves to look. Nothing but green lake-light.” He became frightened, has his mother encountered a hostile moose or turtle?
The story tells how baby Loon learned to dive while looking for his mother. And even though he was frightened he overcame his fear so he can keep searching for his mother. Was he able to find his mother? Imagine getting separated from you child, that is frightened. Great soft cross hatched and watercolor paintings by the illustrator. The frightened look on baby Loon tells the story. I highly recommend this book for your child’s library and for classroom reading.
