Wonderfully repetitive story about a child and its mother The best part was making this story interactive with my storytime friends We stood up when it said, Please pick me up, Mama and sat down when it said, Please put me down, Mama Theme RaccoonsAdditional themes mothers, children babiesReviewed from a library copy. True story Steven agreed. The raccoons in this picture book have a gentle little life Our raccoon child and her mother go through a whole day together from waking up to bedtime Short two line text narrates Each page includes one of the following phrases Please pick me up, Mama or, alternately, Please put me down, Mama Many of the phrases paired with these first lines involve actions a parent and child could do together while reading the book This makes it a nice choice for storytime, as a third party could hold the book and read the words, while the parent and child pairings could act out the text.The illustrations are gentle, but bright, and realistic, in an anthropomorphized animals kind of way The end papers deserve special mention, as the end papers at the beginning of the book are lovely clouds and at the end of the book are stars in a night sky In a field of many similar books, this title is exceptionally well executed.A good one to pick parts from for Book Babies storytimes. it s just a kid book about a kid who gets picked up and put down a lot I loved it when I was little. I picked up this sweet little board book at my local library out of desperation and anxiety about reading chica chica boom boom one time I laugh because of course, Abby is all about being picked up, but I was hardly prepared for the sweetness of this little book.This adorable toddler raccoon is all about pick me up, put me down, pick me up again with it s loving momma, who, if she is anything like mine is very tired indeed Momma and baby eat cookies jam, splash in the bath, play outside, all while being picked up, put down round and around They day ends with momma whispering a sweet goodnight to her babe.While I m sure this is meant to be a calming repetition for a toddler with a two second attention span, I found myself getting a bit teary while reading to my Abby I loved everything about it. A little raccoon wants mama raccoon to pick her up and put her down throughout the day Sweet story Cute illustrations. Robin Luebs Please Pick Me Up, Mamais an ok book that we probably wouldn t bother reading again.Layla and Rachel like repetitive books, books that Layla can participate in and say out loud For some reason though, we were unimpressed by this title A little raccoon is going through the day with her mama Each page alternates with the little raccoon asking to be picked up, and then put down We felt as if the story was just a bit lazy, as if the author came up with one line and then was concerned with making the next one rhyme than to be imaginative and create a great story Please pick me up, Mama Brush my velvet head.Please put me down, Mama Let s have jam and bread So We re not saying this was a bad book, we re just saying that there are too many really good books out there to read this one again. This great book for bedtime reviews a toddler s daytime activities There is so much to mimic within the story that parents and caregivers can also use it during the day as a wiggle break Children could even use a doll to reenact the story Have fun with it and explore the entertaining illustrations in this colorful picture book by Robin Luebs.
