Mama’s back from work!
“Mama’s coming home,” says Papa. And that’s all it takes to get this rambunctious household – two boys, a baby, a dog, and a cat – to settle down. As they pitch in, preparing dinner and straightening up the house, Mama crosses the bustling city, eager to be with her family. Tomek Bogacki’s clever illustrations and Kate Banks’s rhythmic text capture the spirit of activity and anticipation as finally, at the end of the day, their two worlds come together. Children will delight in sharing in the celebration of this everyday homecoming.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The illustrations in this book are really fun. It is based on how the family anticipates their Moma coming home. Moma deals with hassles of the wind, trains, and the rain as the boy are going through their daily routine. At then end of the story the family finally sits down together. This book is very repetitive which makes it excellent for younger children.
