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.
