About the book: With rollicking rhymes and fanciful images, this adorable picture book celebrates the special relationship between mothers and their children. Filled with stories of all kinds of mommies-like pilots and artists and scientists-this book shows how modern mothers still treasure that precious time spent together at home. A perfect book for moms and kids to enjoy this Mother’s Day or any time of the year!
My review: I loved this children's book! I love the pictures, each and every one of them is so detailed and just so much fun.
I loved the little poem, the way it rhymes is super cute. But I really loved the way it talks about the moms and the reasons that moms stay home with their kids. I loved the feeling that each and every mom has something that they are able to teach to and basically pass on to their kids. No matter what they did before, or during raising their kids.
And something that I found really fun was that there is a recipe for one of the treats in the back that's mentioned in the book, as well as how to make a volcano like is mentioned and pictured in the book and how to do a couple of the yoga poses mentioned as well.
I really enjoyed reading about how this book came about. You can read about it here.
This is such a cute children's book that I loved! Go get your own copy!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
