Utterly Lovely One
author/illustrator: Mary Murphy
Oh, my Yummy One, my Utterly Lovely One!
Look at you, so gorgeous!
So opens a glorious praise song from a parent crane to her little cranelet — drawing many other species into the circle of love as she sings. Warm, funny, and full of energy and affection, this is another gem from Mary Murphy, whose springlike palette is well suited to the story's celebratory air.
Tender, playful, and full of joy, this ode from mother to child makes an utterly lovely baby gift and will resonate with readers big and small.
