Like its predecessor, We Like to Nurse Too draws attention to our kinship with all mammals, using simple text and showing delightful full-color illustrations of animal mothers naturally feeding their babies. The illustrations and text in We Like to Nurse Too focus on sea mammals living in the oceans of our shared planet home. Children learn about the nursing habits of animals they love from all parts of the worldsea lions, manatees, porpoises, whales, polar bears, walruses and others. This book serves a dual function. First, it is a celebration of the mother-infant bond that is naturally established through nursing. Because of its commitment to family health and the well-being of infants and children, Hohm Press is proud to present another title that stresses the benefits of human infant breastfeeding. This book joins We Like to Nurse, and Breastfeeding: Your Priceless Gift to Your Baby and Yourself in our Family Health Series, along with other titles like To Touch is To Live, and Conscious Parenting. Secondly, the book takes a stand for the health of the environment, honoring the Earth and all her creatures. Jacques Cousteau, the famed oceanographer, has said We protect what we love. Today, the ocean environment and its inhabitants is threatened by hunters, by the melting of polar ice caps, and by the pollution and debris dumped without conscience into our waters. However, careful decisions made by humans can save our planet. We believe that introducing young children to the nursing habits of sea mammals can foster a love and concern that will grow to protect the Earth we love.
