Happy Valentine’s Day – Mommy, You’re My Woolly Mammoth!

Wooly Mammoth

You won’t think your child saying, “Mommy, you’re my woolly mammoth” is a compliment, until you read How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth by Michelle Robinson and illustrated by Kate Hindley.

We laughed through this 10 Step instructional book.  I appreciated the clever use of an umbrella in Step 6.  ML guffawed at Step 8.  It involved a trampoline and mud.  We really howled at the hairstyles in Fig. 1 – Fig. 8; reaching a unanimous decision.  “Bubble Bliss” is the most attractive hairstyle for a woolly mammoth.

The illustration on the last page spread explains why I consider, “Mommy, you’re my woolly mammoth” a compliment.  It’s  snuggly.  Yes, I know snuggly isn’t a word.  It should be.

Happy Valentine’s Day from ML and her woolly mammoth.
