From Alice Faye Duncan, award-winning author ofHoney Baby Sugar Child, comesJust Like a Mama.

Carol Olivia Clementine lives with Mama Rose. Mama Rose is tender and sweet—everything a child could wish for in a parent. But she is also as stern and demanding as any good parent should be. In the midst of their happy home, Carol Olivia Clementine misses her mother and father. While she longs to be with them, she also learns to embrace the love that is present. Mama Rose becomes her “home.” And Carol Olivia Clementine concludes that she loves Mama Rose “just like a mama.”

This sweet read-aloud is, on the surface, all about the everyday home life a caregiver makes for her young charge: Mama Rose teaches Carol Olivia Clementine how to ride a bike, clean her room, tell time. A deeper look reveals the patience, intention, and care a child receives in the arms of a mother whose blood is not her blood, but whose bond is so deep, so unconditional, that it creates the perfect conditions for a child to feel safe, successful, and deeply loved.

Alice Faye Duncan is the author of eight books, including the classic NAACP Image Award–nominatedHoney Baby Sugar Child from 2005. She is a school librarian in Memphis and conducts writing workshops for parents and educators. Her latest picture book,Memphis, Martin, and the Mountaintop, received a starredKirkus review.

Charnelle Pinkney Barlow is a Georgia-based illustrator and surface designer. She has an MFA in illustration as visual essay from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA in illustration from University of the Arts.
