UmandeHe’s the sweetest gorilla you could ever hope to meet. In A Mom for Umande, author Maria Falconer tells the touching and true story of this baby in search of a mother. Illustrator Susan Kathleen Hartung captures his image perfectly. This delightful new boook was featured in The New York Times on Mother’s Day.

Here is an Interview with the author and a Kirkus review of the book. Ask for it in your local bookstore.
