About The Book

In this celebration of motherhood, a mama can be many things—from a captain of adventures to a quiet supporter—but above all else, she will always be Mama.

She is mama,
she is many things.
Mama is there
for whatever life brings.

From the author of In My Heart and You Are Home, this heartfelt board book celebrates all the things a mama can be: a silent supporter and an encouraging voice, patience and power, soft and strong. This lovely book speaks to all mothers, who know that to be one is to be so many different things and also just to be one thing: a mama.
