Description

Mama’s Right Here is a delicate, affectionately written reminder that a mother’s love never disappears. Even when a mother is absent, her presence is constant in a child’s heart. With comforting rhyme and gentle illustrations, Mama’s Right Here brings the important message to children that a mother’s love is always with them— in the way they look, and in everything they do. A companion book, Always By My Side, tells of a father’s ever-present love, also written by Susan Kerner.
