Review: Mama, Do You Love Me? by Barbara Joosse, Barbara Lavallee (Illustrator)

Mama, Do You Love Me?Mama, Do You Love Me? by Barbara Joosse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mamma, Do You Love Me? is a wonderful story about a little girl testing her mother to find out how far show could go and how much she can push her limits to see if her mamma will still lover her. Her mother through this also discovers that even when she would be angry, sad or scared no matter what she will always love her little girl.

On top of this we the reader are introduce to another cultures history we might not necessarily know much about, through both the words in the story and illustrations.

One thing I really liked about this story, besides it being a mother/daughter book about their love of the other is the little index at the back telling us about the individual things mentioned. Be it something as simple as the word dog, but they give us how it relates to the Inuit.
