It sits on his shoulder. It nestles in his pocket. It keeps watch while he naps. Even while Mama Bird and Baby are apart, her love is always with him. Kathi Appelt's rhyming text pairs with Jane Dyer's (I Love You Like Crazy Cakes) sweet pictures in perfect show-and-tell style. Watch and read about Baby's day--singing, playing, swinging--and Mama's day--designing and sewing dresses, having a coffee date with Daddy. Then gather your little bird up in a hug, and celebrate, as they do, coming home to each other.
