New Release from Sawyer Cloud

Published on 21/03/2022

Yet another great title from Advocate’s great selling artist Sawyer Cloud is about to hit the shelves near you!

The newest publication from Soaring Kite Books “Dear Mama’s Loving Arms” will be released this Tuesday, February 1st.

“Dear Mama’s Loving Arms” centers on the importance of a mother’s embrace and the joy it brings to children, told from the witty perspective of a child. This book is a reminder to all mothers to stop and enjoy the bond we share with our children even when it is most challenging, like those days where all the baby wants is to be held.

Sawyer’s beautiful work captures the precious love between mother and child. Reviews are raving for her creative touch that brings this story to life!

“Cloud presents a visual adventure from baby’s bedroom to a majestic dreamscape. The artist’s warm earth tones mimic the calming nature that abounds throughout the narrative. Mama has brown skin and black hair, with baby’s skin and hair both slightly lighter shades of brown. This picture book’s rhythmic language is as comforting as the swaying of a loving mother’s arms; a sweet lulling, naptime read” -School Library Journal

“The illustrations are beautiful and truly capture the diverse images of both baby and mother. Absolutely loved this book and will recommend it to new mamas everywhere!” -Amazon

“This is such an adorable story and the illustrations are so beautiful. I’m a first time mama and loved to see the bonding portrayed between mama and child! I also love the representation of the black community. I want to expose my child to as much diversity and as many cultures that I can and it’s exciting to see!” -Amazon

Check out our social media pages this week for more information on this trendy new title. If you are like us and can’t wait to read this, it’s also available for preorder!
