About the Author
When Shanalees son Braydon was born in 2010, he had severe reflex. She and her husband, Perry, spent the first six months with their son on a 24/7 vigilant watch to make sure his condition did not take him back to heaven. Shanalee spent countless hours rocking her son day and night humming nursing tunes to calm him. None of them worked, until she began to hum a melody which later formed words. These words turned into lyrics, lyrics turned into verses, and the verses became the beautiful lullaby she sang to her newborn son entitled, My Mama Loves Me. After Braydons reflux went away, Shanalee wrote down all the melodies to the lullaby so she would not forget the loving song she once sang to her infant son, over and over again, to calm him in his time of need. This became the book, My Mama Love Me, the first in her children's series, My Family Loves Me.

There is nothing quite so strong and meaningful as a mother's love. And it's something that's there forever, whether we realize it or not. Mothers teach us as children; they play with us as children, and they help guide our steps along the precarious path of life. A mother's love is a bond full of nurturing, teaching, encouraging, caring, and so much more.
When author Shanalee Sharboneau's son was born, he had a severe reflux. She and her husband had to watch over young Braydon around the clock for the first six months of his life. She talked to him, sang to him, and did everything she could to soothe the young baby. What worked best was a song she wrote called My Mama Loves Me: I'm Her Little Boy. The song became this beautifully illustrated book with lyrics to tug at the heartstrings. The charm and the power of this author's simple words will bring tears to any reader's eyes, much like Robert Munsch's story, "Love You Forever," which also spoke of the unconditional love between a mother and her child.
The repetitive and catchy words, "My Mama," start each new thought: "My Mama Wakes Me. My Mama takes care of me. My Mama starts my day with love." And it doesn't get any better than that - the true power of a mother's love. The last page says it all: "My Mama loves me. My Mama loves me. My Mama loves me all life long." Beautifully illustrated to capture the young reader's attention while the charming lyrics will capture the hearts of young and old alike.
Great children's book!! An easy read with beautiful illustrations that keep your son or daughter engaged. Reading about the author's story behind the book makes it that much more special. Highly recommended!!!
