It is set in a northern home and is an Alaska Native Mother that show her son Michael that there is always room on mother’s lap for him and his brother and even their toys. This story is shows the love between a mother and a sons. And patience that one must have while raising little ones. I hear the Michael as he explains what is happening. It shows the love and reading between a mom and her sons. It made me think of my mom reading to us as Children and me and my siblings fighting over whose turn it was to pick a book. I think the point of view is that of the eyes of the children. The illustrations look to be drawing with color pencil or oil pastels. I enjoyed this book it made me think of my mom reading to me and now how I read to my own kids.

On Mother’s Lap is a cute story that follows a child named Michael in a traditional northern (Alaskan) home as he collects his favorite belongings while he rocks on his mother’s lap and his experience with sharing with his baby brother. The book is repetitive and soothing with illustrations that are as soft and comforting as the text. This is a simple book with a comforting message that would be suitable for younger students and/or students who are learning to share.
Alaska Connection: Illustrations show a traditional northern (Alaskan) home and a traditional family.

Michael loves to rock on his mother’s lap in their cozy cabin in Alaska, but he keeps bringing more things onto her lap. When his baby sister wants to join them, he thinks there won’t be space, but as his mother says, there is always room on mother’s lap. Colorful oil pastel illustrations and a COZY, CHILD-CENTERED world create an appealing story of a nurturing mother and a happy child.

Michael, a preschool Inuit boy discovers there is always room on mother’s lap. The illustrator’s soft sketches of a traditional Inuit home lend to the gentle and inviting flow of a boy’s simple but special snuggle with his mother.
