Book Review: Hey Mum, I love you, by Corinne Fenton

Available in bookstores nationwide. 

Corinne Fenton is an Australian children’s cv_hey_mum_i_love_youauthor living in Melbourne. She has written a number of books – Curious Charlotte, Mum and the Blowfly, being a couple of them. She also writes under the name Corinne King.

Hey Mum, I love you is a beautiful book with large photos accompanying the text. ‘Hey Mum, I love you more than the prickliest tickle, the softest sigh, the best kept secret.’ The photos are mainly of female animals with their young showing affection (a monkey having a cuddle with its Mum).

The text is simple and would absolutely appeal to very small children. I can imagine Mum’s reading this book and doing some of the actions with their children. It would make ideal reading for bedtime.

The photos are quite stunning. I can’t wait to read this to my little grandson Logan (2) in Queenstown when we visit in a couple of months.
