Children's LiteratureIt is mother's special day and her daughter wants to make sure it is memorable. She says, "May I ...be the mom to you today?" Of course she cannot quite handle things with her mother's aplomb. The kitchen is a mess from creating something to eat that includes pickles, marshmallows, cider and other luscious ingredients. She fixes her mother's hair and applies her make-up. Then she asks, "Mother, may I clean the house?" Of course it is more of a mess than when she started. By the end of the day her mother has a headache and is exhausted but she perks up when her daughter asks, "Mother, May I ...say 'I love you!'" The straightforward text and the humorous cartoon illustrations work well together to create a story that will elicit laughter from the primary grade set. While the concept is not new, the cartoon-style illustrations expand the text and create the fun here. 2004, Dutton, Ages 4 to 8.
