    " On Mother's Lap is a story about a young boy named Michael who sits on his mothers lap and gathers all of his favorite items. Rocking back and forth, back and forth, the mother tells Michael that there is always enough room on Mother's lap, even for his younger sibling. As a teacher, I would not use this text in the classroom. I would not want to offend any of my students who are adopted or do not have parents. The illustrations in the sdents to focus on and feel a part of the story. This story can teach about diverse families. "

    " Sweet story and illustrations. The message about welcoming a new sibling is touching and good for a older sibling adjusting to a new baby. I decided I need to start exposing my children to Spanish so this works great because the Spanish is above and English translation below. "

    " This is a lovely book and it reminds parents and teachers alike that every child needs to feel special. It would be a good book to read at bedtime. "This timeless, well-loved story captures the warmth of a universal childhood experience". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen Heroux | 11/13/2013

    " On Mother's Lap is a universal story to which any child with siblings can relate; seeking mother's attention when a new baby has entered the family. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peggy | 5/17/2013

    " BORING. My little one said it was boring because all it was about was going back and forth . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karla | 1/21/2013

    " Beautiful soft illustrations of an inuit child rocking on his mother's lap. I loved it! Cute simple story, lovely illustrations, and bilingual! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorie | 12/2/2012

    " Loved this book. Lesson: there's plenty of room on mommy's lap. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 K | 11/16/2012

    " Another book where the older sibling shows hostility towards the younger sibling. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amalia Ricksecker | 10/2/2012

    " PB 50: I didn't really like this book. Maybe as a mother it would be more enjoyable but as a non-mother I rate it low. Pictures weren't that great and the story wasn't either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany Nolan | 7/26/2012

    " Michael's favorite place to be is on his mother's lap, but he's not certain if there's enough room there for both he and the baby. Mom says there's "always room on mother's lap." Sweet, nice pictures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeniann | 5/30/2012

    " A great picture book! This is one of those that I have read over and over and don't get tired of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan Alleyne | 10/22/2011

    " When I read this book my first thought was ...Mothers are always so giving and so selfless! This is a good book to read for the child who is about to have a sibling. Good bedtime book with great illustrations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Molly | 10/19/2011

    " Very sweet! A good choice for a newly minted older sibling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 9/14/2011

    " From the cover, I didn't expect to like the illustrations, but they're much better throughout the story. Also, it's just a cute story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 8/25/2011

    " Very sweet story of a mother's all encompassing love as shown through her lap where there is "always room." The illustrations are lovely. I like the interesting setting (an Inuit village) compared to many of this type of book. I also like that the little boy has a doll. A dear book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ingrid | 6/30/2011

    " My son definitely doesn't have the attention span for this sweet book. Maybe when he's older, or suddenly turns sedate, he'll find it more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 6/28/2011

    " A cute story with soft images. The theme that there is always room on mother's lap is reassuring for children since it, quite transparently, implies they will always have room in their mother's heart and life. A beautiful and moving little book. "
