Beneath the Turquoise Waters by Summer Gillett
Published by JoJo Publishing
This beautifully illustrated Australian picture book tells the story of motherhood across the generations. The full page underwater illustrations bring to life the passage of time as a dugong and a turtle give birth to their young and in subsequent years those young grow up and have their own babies. Beware, this story may result in a few curly questions from little ones (as it did in my situation!) but this is a great way to open conversation about the cycle of life in both humans and animals.
For any adults or parents wanting to introduce their children to the concepts of motherhood and birth this book is a lovely choice.
