A mother is like a nest, a mother is like a means of transport, a mother is like a fountain … As in a children’s rhyme, these short phrases accompany every step in a baby’s daily life. Throughout the pages, the child grows up, going through different learnings. The reader accompanies the child through these small big steps. The mother who used to be a nest, shelter for the newborn, becomes a road, a story or a spectacle for the child who plays. And as she grows up, the distance between her and her mother also increases in the illustrations. Until the last image, with the child’s first steps.
Because a mother is like a house that we take with us forever.
