Mom's Never Too Busy! Busy, Busy by Eileen Spinelli
FROG IS VERY BUSY LEAPING.
BEAVER HAS NO TIME TO PLAY.
MAMA BIRD IS BUSY TEACHING
LITTLE BIRD TO FLY AWAY.
It seems everyone is busy in the springtime. Bees buzz back and forth to the hive, and bears work at fattening themselves up after the long winter. Mama Duck has got eggs to hatch, while Groundhog is checking the warming ground for his shadow.
Raccoon forages in the trash, and Squirrel's busy building his stash.
Even Mom is busy setting out seedlings in her spring garden.
SHE HAS LOTS OF WORK TO DO.
BUT SHE'D NEVER BE TOO BUSY...
FOR A CUDDLE-UP WITH YOU!
It's first things first for Mom, who always has time for a kiss and snuggle with her little helper in his yellow gardening boots, because that's what moms do, in Eileen Spinelli's just published board book, Busy, Busy! (WorthyKids, 2016). Spinelli, a mother of six children and a noted wordsmith, poet and storyteller for the very young, knowa what it means to be a busy mom, but not too busy to give mothers their due in this gentle story.
