Acclaimed author/artist Todd Parr -- whose previous children's books deliver "feel-good" messages about believing in yourself and being different -- now takes a turn at celebrating mothers. Dedicated to "all the different kinds of moms who have worked so hard to make life a little easier with their unconditional love and support," The Mommy Book is a colorful, quirky, kid-friendly tribute to mommies everywhere.
Employing Parr's trademark bright colors, bold lines, zany characters, and funky, freewheeling style, each page of this playful picture book describes a mom. From "Some mommies drive minivans" and "Some mommies drive motorcycles" to "Some mommies work at home" and "Some mommies work in big buildings," all kinds of smiling moms are depicted here. There are casual moms and conservative moms, outdoorsy moms and cosmopolitan moms...but they all have one thing in common: They all love to hug and kiss and care for their kids. And as Parr declares on the last page, "All mommies want you to be who you are!"
Both a celebration of individuality and a testament to the loving nature and importance of moms, The Mommy Book will make both kids and parents smile. And as an extra bonus, this book comes packaged with a whimsical greeting card for kids to send to their moms to say, "I love you." With The Mommy Book, the rewards of motherhood never end!
