Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This delightful book of quotes by children from ages 8 to 13 is a small gift that will brighten any mom's day. The light tone is demonstrated by the colorful, imaginative illustrations. The children's reflections, written in a childlike script, are organized within three themes, Perceptions & Pronouncements; Concerns, Misgivings & Cavils; and Certainties, Appreciations & Accolades. The book includes honest declarations, like "My mom's hair is really brown, but she paints it blond," by eight-year-old Daniella. They are accompanied by playful drawings, portraying the images that only children can create with their humorous choice of words. The tender statements like the one by eight-year-old Timothy will surely bring a smile: "My mom loves me as much as my dad does. But not so rough." It is clear that the author, Stuart Hample, continues to have his mom, who he states is "103 years young," close to his heart. Read and enjoy, Moms! 2000, Workman, Ages adult, $7.95.

Read an Excerpt

I like to look at pictures of her when she waas my age and make believe we're best friends and know secret stuff we won't tell anybody else. —Cynthia (Cindi) going into 5th

When my mom cracked her favorite plate she cried. That made me cry. Then she started to laugh. Then I laughed too. Then she put the pieces in the garbage and said, "Oh well it isn't the end of the world." —Angelina Age, 10

My mom lets me have my cat Oliver even though she's not a cat person. But she's kind to him anyway because she knows I couldn't live with-out him. —Patricia, 9

If I get a bad grade she doesn't make a big deal. She teaches me never to give up. She went on the rollercoaster with me when no one else would. These are some of the reasons I'm glad she had me instead of somebody else. —Donald, 10 1/2
