There is so much we can learn about motherhood from the animal kingdom. We can learn how to be the strong role model your child needs, like the snow leopard that teaches her children to survive and thrive on dangerous mountain slopes; to be as resilient as the hardworking sea otter mom; and to serve your community like the pika. This is a beautiful tribute to Mom, full of adorable animal photographs and touching anecdotes that show your appreciation for all the wisdom and care Mom provides.
