    Great Book for New Moms!

    I bought this book for my daughter-in-law who is expecting her first child. I remember hearing little unknown nursery rhymes and stories from my mother-in-law and parents when my babies were young. I thought - how sweet to have a compilation for new Moms-to-Be. This book is just that and more.
    I highly recommend it as the perfect baby shower or birthday gift for the new Mom-to-Be.

    My sister and her daughter love this!

    I gave this book to my sister and she loves it. My niece loves looking at all the pictures and reading the stories and poems. A 'must' gift for expectant mothers! You will become familiar with songs and stories that you may have forgotton and fall in love with them all over again!

The illustrations are all so colorful and nice to look at and the book is arranged in a easy to read fashion. Everyone will love this book. Every mom and dad should have this book to read and pass down to their children. :)

    My Mom Needed This Book!

    If my mother had this book when I was a child, I would have had a much richer background. I love the fact that this book has everything I could ever think of reading to my little one. And the illustrations are just stunning. I highly recommend this book to all mothers, young and old. It is a great keepsake reminder of what makes childhood so magical and s

    For ANY mother, new or experienced!

    This book is a valuable keepsake for every family. It is so charmingly illustrated with the kind of beloved pictures we boomers and older parents will remember from our pre-tv childhood.The book is stuffed with games, poems, stories, comfort food recipes and alot more. My husband said The Little Big Book for Moms should be bundled with Dr. Spock so new families have a guide to the physical care AND the spirit of their children- there's alot of love and fun in it and it is a great baby shower gift, and for any Mommy and Grandparents to have, too.

    calling all little kids everywhere!

    This little book is the sum of all the parts. It has our favorite fairy tales, our favorite authors (Milne, E.B. White, Brothers Grimm, Maya Angeleou, Ogden Nash, e.e. cummings, shel Silverstein and dozens more, many of our favorite poems and stories; it has dozens of games (the best finger games) and pretty adorable recipes for me to make with my son as well as for him -- so far I have tried the applesauce pancakes and the alphabet chicken soup. Together my son, Maxwell and I -- he is 4, made the chocolate cupcakes today His friends are coming to his birthday party tomorrow and I suspect we will spend at least two hours decorating them. Yum. I got an advance copy of this book to review and, instead, I have been reading it to Max. Last night (we have had it for five days) I asked him -as we snuggled down to bed- what he wanted me to read. Mom's Book he said. Is that the best?
