When Mama leaves her young penguin, Kipling, he knows she'll return home soon - yet he still can't help but miss her. After all, Pillow Mama won't read, Picture Mama won't laugh, and Snow Mama is too cold to cuddle. But then Kipling receives a special delivery from Mama, including a note that reads: My love for you stretches across the wide ocean, through day and night, from earth to sky and back again. And Kipling knows that no matter where Mama is, he is loved. Soon, Mama comes home, and Kipling ends the day where he belongs - right in her arms. With a heartwarming story and tender illustrations, Jeanette Bradley's debut picture book is perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and any day when a child needs a reminder of the strength of a mother's love.
A modern mummy-love picture book about a young penguin who learns that a mother's love is never too faraway.

Jeanette's exuberant illustrations have won multiple awards, including the R. Michelson Gallery Emerging Artist Award. She currently lives in Rhode Island.
"Bradley's soft paintings and understated narration create a rich maritime world--and the comforting assurance of enduring love--that should readily resonate with the children of working parents, even if their Mamas don't head off to work on an ice floe, as Kipling's mother does." --Publishers Weekly"The artwork works with the spare text to keep the focus on how Kipling is feeling; readers are sure to empathize. This will provide both reassurance to children missing their own loved ones and ideas for staying connected." --Kirkus Reviews "The artwork works with the spare text to keep the focus on how Kipling is feeling; readers are sure to empathize.
