– Mama’s Favorite
Written by Brigitte Sidjanski (Author) and Sarah Burg (Illustrator)

Muri loves his mama, and Mama loves him. But being one of seven, he sometimes wonders who is Mama’s favorite. Does Mama prefers his baby sister? Or his oldest sister, who lives far away? Or his big brother who is sick? Or Muri himself? But what if Mama loved all of her children the same way?

– Mad at Mommy
Written By Komako Sakai

Little Bunny is very mad at his mommy. She sleeps too late. She talks too much. She watches her silly shows instead of cartoons. And she gets mad for no reason — just a few little bubbles on the floor. The only thing left to do is run away. But does he really want to leave Mommy behind forever?
