CRRL Kids: Mom and Me
Annotation:As night falls, animal and human parents everywhere tenderly tuck their children into bed. In the darkness, each child--raccoon, doe, rabbit, field mouse, and a little boy--wonders: "Will I be safe? Will you be there for me?" And every mommy and daddy responds with the comforting words, "Yes, I am here." A picture book version of the beautiful song, "Day Is Done."

Come right in and meet the family -- the animal family, that is -- in words and pictures by Eric Carle."
