Karma Wilson's reassuring text, paired with Brooke Dyer's colorful and comforting mother-child illustrations, shows that -- rain or shine, in a tree or in the sea -- mamas everywhere find their way home with cozy hugs and lots of love, because Mama Always Comes Home.

Karma Wilson is the bestselling author of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More, both illustrated by Jane Chapman, as well as Mama Always Comes Home, illustrated by Brooke Dyer. She lives with her family in northern Idaho.From School Library Journal:
PreS–A gentle and reassuring picture book. Children will be drawn right in from the title page, on which a mother holds and kisses her pajama-clad child. The consistently tender illustrations follow the text's well-crafted rhymes as different animal mothers leave their offspring for a brief period and then return. Mama Bird (in a flowered headscarf) feeds her babies, then tucks them beneath a quilt in their nest before digging up more worms; Mama Cat leaves her kittens in the barn to have a sip of cream in the house; Mama Dog runs out to play with her boy. Each example ends with the refrain: "Mama always comes home." At the end of the story, the human mother explains to her little one, "I want to stay,/but while I'm gone have fun and play,/and soon, before you know,/time will fly right by, and then/I'll be coming home again." Presented with a delicate and loving touch, this book embodies the power of thoughtful text supported by insightful pictures. A good choice for parents and children dealing with separation anxiety.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
