You Are Mine, Porcupine
Mama Porcupine lovingly introduces her little one to the world by taking him on a tour of the forest at night. She warns him about the dangers that lurk when the sky is no longer lit. With sweet nurturance, she emboldens him with the knowledge he has an original coat of protection. Mama Porcupine shows her porcupette the array of delicious treats that will help him grow. Together, they climb branches of a nearby tree and roam the grounds for more adventure and lessons to be learned. Before the sun begins to shine and a delightful night of fun and exploration concludes, Mama Porcupine reminds her offspring just how deeply he is loved.
You Are Mine, Porcupine is a truly precious story that beautifully elucidates a mother’s love for her kin as she prepares him to face the world of the outdoors. It’s filled with gorgeous, first-rate illustrations that pulse with warmth and comfort. Even the cover is soft to the touch and pulls the reader into the tenderness locked inside it. The words are creatively displayed across the pages in concave and convex assortments, adding a unique and youthful quality to the text. Children as young as three and as old as eight will likely find this picture book one to be cherished.
