    About "Kathleen T. Pelley"

    1. Kathleen T. Pelley

      I was born in Glasgow, Scotland a country famous for its heather dappled mountains, lochs, tartans, thistles, shaggy Highland cattle, sheep, bagpipes, castles, haggis, and of course, a veritable treasure chest of stories.My gentle Irish father also loved to feed me his own tales of fairies, leprechauns, and banshees Every summer, my two big brothers and I would visit my grandparents farm in Ireland, where we whiled away the days with hay rides, turf rides, milking cows, shearing sheep, feeding pet lambs, and organizing frog races.My passion for stories stemmed from listening to them crouched in front of the radio for the BBC children s hour, or huddled before a turf fire in Ireland as the aunts and uncles talked in low, hushed voices, or walking hand in hand with my dad down a leafy lane, as he whispered secrets to me about mermaids and banshees Before I could write words, or read them, I knew that they were magic, because of the music they made.After I learned to read, I devoured all the fairy tales I could find At school my favorite subjects were English and History and Drama At Edinburgh University, I studied History I was never very good at remembering all the dates, because that involved numbers, but I had no trouble remembering the people and the events, because that involved stories As an elementary teacher, I loved teaching language and history and drama In my classroom I always made plenty of time for reading stories aloud to my students, no matter what age they were.After moving to the States in 1990 with my husband, an American, and my two daughters, one born in Scotland, the other in England, I was extremely homesick Writing helped to soothe the hurt in my heart, and soon I was sending off my stories to publishers.After many, many, years, and many, many rejections, I finally began to experience a few small successes, and in October 2003, my first children s picture book was published by Child and Family Press.When I m not writing my own stories, I enjoy telling stories to anyone who will listen For over twelve years I was a narrator of books on tape for the Colorado Talking Book Library, and for the past 20 years I have been fortunate to have a wonderful audience of children at two inner city elementary schools, where I visit once a month and read folktales and fairytales from around the world to grades K 6 Visit my website to sign up for a membership and access to these stories online.

    1. MY REVIEW I adored this book I have to admit that a tear may have dipped down my cheek This book really does capture the joys of parenting whether in a home in America or abroad or in nature, motherhood can be the single greatest joy in the world Nothing makes a mother s happier than when their children are happy From morning to night mother s strive to be there for their children This book captures everything that is wonderful about being a mother The illustrations also capture the sheer love b [...]

    3. I love how this book shows the love mamas have for their children both humans and animals The author takes different times of the day and asks a question which is then answered by showing how that applies to different animals and then to humans They are simple things that any mama can do, and they certainly bring me happiness I also enjoyed the illustrations The colors are soft and there are fun little details like a smiley face on a stack of pancakes as well as lots of animals to identify Child [...]


    4. This was an adorable read The rhythmic text coupled with the sweet illustrations was so nice to read, and I could very easily imagine reading it along with a preschool age kid.


    5. ages 3 5This book is cute, but I didn t love the limiting message it told of what makes mothers happy The animal and human mamas in the story are happy when their babies are fed and cared for and ready for sleep But what about other interests outside of mothering A little too anti feminist for my tastemsradius 2016 12 cyb

    8. Rhythmic text, warm and colorful illustrations, and the appeal of cute baby animals will draw young readers to this book At each time of day various mamas, both animal and human, are shown in activities with their offspring Whether it is finding bamboo for a panda cub, a baby elephant spraying water from its trunk, or a child tiptoeing close to see a butterfly, each scene is vibrant and inviting The mothers in the wild are busy making sure their young are fed, safe, and happy, just as the human [...]


    9. This book is a beautiful reflection on the days of childhood idyllically carefree and joy filled for both baby and mother It opens the child s mind to other places, other worlds, other perspectives in a very thoughtful and child centered way, using animals children love The illustrations bring the text to life and nothing distracts from the message Kathleen T Pelley has for us Beneath the lilting delivery of this beautiful script is the very powerful message of the unfailing bond of unconditiona [...]


    10. This is such a sweet book I adore reading bedtime stories with my child and this book captures those wonderful emotions and adds a bit of silly It is fun to read out loud and my daughter loves to flip the pages and look at all the different animals.Kathleen visited my daughter s school and we all adored her She was fun, engaging, and snuck in a bit of learning without the children even knowing I am a happy mama after reading this book

    12. Sweet book but something wasn t quite doing it for me I wasn t amazed by the text or illustrations However, it would be nice book to gift to an expectant mother as it includes various kinds of animals and how their mamas care for them I received an ARC via NetGalley CWLA Press in exchange for an honest review.


    13. Cute story about mama s and their babies The book follows animals throughout the day, showing love and affection Very cute I found I wanted the book to rhyme in some parts, as the phrasing was read aloud, so it was a bit awkward when it didn t My kids found it cute at first, but didn t hold their attention.I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


    14. Kathleen T Pelley has such a delicious grasp of lyrical language It was a delight to read Kids will love the information about animal mothers, and teachers will appreciate that children of different ethnic groups were represented.


    15. This is such a sweet story that reads like a love letter from mother to child I read the book to my three year old who adored it My daughter enjoyed making the animal sounds on each page and pointing out the babies her and the mamas me I foresee this book quickly becoming a bedtime favorite.


    16. I liked the illustrations of animals and that there people in the illustrations represent many cultures I received an ARC from NetGalley.
