Big Mama's Baby (Hardcover)
Ever since Big Mama brought Baby home, the local folks wonder how on earth she can keep him as a pet. When Big Mama calls, "Hey, Baby! Hey, Big Mama's Baby!" the calf comes trotting, looking for a hug and a scratch behind his ears. But calves have a habit of growing bigger . . . and bigger . . . and Baby is no different. Before long, Baby is waking the neighbors with his bellowing in the middle of the night and busting Big Mama's screened-in porch. And then one day, Baby is full-grown. What will Big Mama do now? This endearing story, with charming illustrations by Nancy Cote, is filled with homespun humor and lively language, perfect for reading aloud.
