    One thought on “Motherhood”

    1. JC Little is a charming animator, and her quirky sense of humor has had me tuning in to her blog for a number of years now. So when she offered me the chance to read Motherhood, I jumped on it. I have to say this. For parents of littles, this will be a cute and quirky addition to your bookshelf. As you watch your children grow, however, it takes on a poignant new meaning. From the day they're born and they steal your heart to the day they walk away, leaving you with a smile, a tear and a memory, [...]

    2. In “Motherhood” J C Little has create a sweet little book that speaks volumes about Freedom ,Love and the changing relationship between a mother and her children than I have read in many much longer tracts about the subject.It is a little different, first it is wordless just beautifully animated pictures that convey meaning and context. Each page provides a rich and endearing perspective as a woman passes from free-spirited youth to a woman bearing her child, to the understanding and necessi [...]

    3. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.One of the books that is an epitome of this statement is Motherhood. Motherhood is a picture book that depicts the bond between mother and child. No words are used at all throughout the book.The author does a terrific job with the illustrations. She has a knack of using the simplest technique to capture such universal expressions, like joy, confusion and sadness. I also liked the progression of the heart (child): from when it crawled to when it [...]

    4. I received this book through the First Reads program.J.C. Little has created a beautiful, though slightly unconventional, storybook about motherhood.Using only lovely childlike illustrations - no words - the author relates the whole of the mothering experience, from the pre-child freedom to the bittersweet pride of watching your child grow up and leave you.As someone who's never had children, I can't pretend to relate to the mother in this story, but I did enjoy experiencing the joys and sadnes [...]

    5. I received this as a first-reads giveaway.A cute little story picturing motherhood (although maybe the carefree life before children were given a bit to much space in this picture book).I loved the little heart, the child as being the mother's heart ripped out of her body, first as a baby, and then growing, and finally leaving.I must say the flower in the end puzzled me, what was it supposed to represent?But still, it was nice and cute, and wildly outside of my regular-reading-zone.

    6. J.C. Little has given birth to another beautiful book and I was lucky enough to receive a digital copy to review. I wrote about it for Tuesday Tales:theangelforever/2014/0

    7. I saw the original comic when it came out years ago and thought it was the perfect description of motherhood. I loved the book version so much. It still makes me teary-eyed.I got this for myself but this would make a perfect gift for any mother, grandmother, godmother dad-mother, auntie-mom or anyone with a mom heart.
