What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

I’ll teach you everything I know, and guide you as you learn and grow, because you are my baby. A mama coyote sings moon songs through the night just as a mama human cuddles her baby and lays her down to sleep. This precious story illustrates that the love a mother feels for her child is not unlike the affection animal mothers in the desert show their offspring. Beautifully written text is lovingly complemented by Sylvia Long’s wonderful illustrations, making this an important book for parents and children to share together.

Who Wrote Because You Are My Baby

Jennifer Ward

I believe it’s important for people to follow their passion and love what they do - these are words my father always shared with me, and he is a wise man. I am blessed to have a creative job and one that I love - making books for children!

I am the author of more than twenty-four acclaimed books for children. I write full-time from my home - where I am easily distracted by anything and everything outside of my windows.
