A refreshing change from the movie and comic book tie-ins that seem to make up so much of children's literature these days. On the surface, this is just a deceptively simple story about a mother and a son going for an everyday walk together. There's a lot more going on here than that, though. First, "Mommy works a lot," making this a special one on one time. As the story progresses, we are shown the wonderful bond between the mother and son, made manifest in Mommy's patience and willingness to answer every question asked of her, and in Mikel's trust that Mommy's answers are correct. When Mommy doesn't have an answer, she doesn't cop out and give some lame answer like, "Well, maybe you'll learn this in school." Instead, she takes steps to find the answer and in doing so, she is showing Mikel how to go about finding things like this out. For an adult, reading this book to a child, there are a couple of messages here that Ms. Morris gets across without sermonizing. First, the time spent together between a child and parent is precious, that the memories produced will last a lifetime. Equally importantly, a parent will be reminded that they are their child's first and most important teacher.

"A great honest and fun read for you and your child!"  This is a refreshingly honest story that both children and adults can identify with.   A true story about time spent together and learning as we go in life.  A great story for you to share with your child! A story to enjoy over and over again!

An adventure in Learning! The story was more than just taking a walk with your mom, it was seeing things out in the world and then wanting to learn from them. It was a great story for any child who loves picture books and animals. The story shows that we learn from just exploring our world, and asking questions. When we don't know the answers, we strive to find our answers and learn. A wonderful story. Recommend it to any child, even those who can only look at the pictures.

Rarely can you find a book about a mother and a young son's adventures. I loved reading and feeling the warmth in their relationship.

Very cute and educating book for children. Made me laugh and I could relate the characters "mother and son relationship" to my own childhood life. A definite must have!

Reviewed by Lori A. Moore for Readers' Favorite Mommy and Mikel Go For a Walk by Ann Morris is a well-illustrated book for children that teaches a lesson while being entertaining. In this book, M stands not only for Mommy and Mikel, but also for Mystery and Mink. When Mommy and Mikel go for a walk, they find many things about which Mikel is curious, including a goldfinch, daisies, poison ivy, and an American Mink. At first they don't know what the animal they saw in the water is, so Mommy takes Mikel to the library and they investigate by looking for pictures of what they saw in an encyclopedia. After Mommy finds the picture, Mikel is happy to have solved the mystery and learned about a new animal. Mommy and Mikel Go For a Walk captures what a walk would be like with a little one who is full of energy and curiosity, wanting to know about everything he encounters. Morris does a good job of making it a learning book about several different things, but I also appreciated how the mother looked after the son's safety by bringing along a jacket and not letting him cross the library parking lot by himself. The illustrations in Mommy and Mikel Go For A Walk are very well done and kids will like seeing the mystery items in them. It was nice to see how Mikel enjoyed the opportunity to take a walk with his mom because he doesn't get to do it very often.
