Book cover about Wild about Mums by Philip Bunting

Just in time for Mother’s Day, I am delighted to share that our May Book of the Month is the picture book, Wild about Mums by Philip Bunting. Philip Bunting is an Australian author and illustrator, based in Queensland.

Wild about Mums is a celebration of the mums of Mother Nature. It includes educational and playful stories about animal mums from all around the world, including cheetah mums, humpback whale mums. koala mums, bear mums, and many more.

If you would like to learn more about book and its creator, read on.

Learning about Mums of the Wild

I have selected the book for two main reasons. The first is that it is a great introduction to the mothers of Nature for emergent readers. The book is informative; it shows children that mothers come from diverse backgrounds and species and have different ways to nurture their young.

It’s Wild Fun!

Wild about Mums is a fun and entertaining read for children, especially those who are emergent readers and for this reason, I also highly recommend the book. The language is playful and Bunting’s illustrations are colourful and fun. The book makes the experience of learning about animal mums very enjoyable. As a side note, creating entertaining picture books for young reader is something that Philip Bunting is passionate about. As he states on his website, he believes that when children find joy and pleasure in reading, the more likely they will return to book later in life. I agree with him.

If you would like to read the book, I invite you to take a glimpse at the book by watching my flip-through review. I give thanks to Hardie Grant Publishing for granting me permission to undertake this review.

Meanwhile, the book is available for purchase from Amazon.

I also invite you to take a creative adventure with animals, including the koala, the greater rhea and the orca. Check out my new art library and also my free resources available in my store.
