"When will you come back, / Mama hen, mama hen?"
"After I peck around the pen / And race red rooster, cock-a-doodle-doo! / I'll come back, come back to you."
Mama goes off to do her farm chores, while baby stays home with Grandma. When will she be back? Why, after her work is through. Warm illustrations show Mama Cat, Mama Pig, and other moms lovingly repeating this question and answer pattern.
Reviewed by Kay Marner, a freelance writer, who's a mom by birth and adoption. She lives with her family in Ames, Iowa.
