"Mama, Who Drinks Milk Like Me?" is a bright and colorful children's book that supports breastfeeding. It is a perfect addition to a young child's book collection. This book is informative and applicable for mothers and children no matter where they are on their breastfeeding journey. At the same time, it also gently introduces nursing children to the idea of weaning, while relating this stage to developmental stages and the mother/child unit's choice, rather than a number defined by a societal timetable. Nine mama/baby mammal pairs (not including the human mother and child) are picture in bold illustrations, including bats, whales and hedgehogs.--- Melissa Panter has also written and illustrated other books, including "Mama Holds Me Close," a babywearing themed book that tells the different places and occasions a mother carries her child, using illustrations of animals that also carry their children.--- The author encourages others to read about what the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the U.S. Surgeon General have to say about human milk.
