The Mommy Book

The Mommy Book celebrates all different kinds of moms and highlights the many reasons they are so special. Whether your mom goes fishing or goes shopping, whether she works at home or in a big building, whether she has short hair or big hair, Todd Parr assures readers that no matter what kind of mommy you have, every mother is special in her own unique way.

With his trademark bold, bright colors and silly scenes, Todd Parr explains that while no two mothers are alike, "all mommies want you to be who you are!" Perfect for young children just beginning to read, The Mommy Book is designed to encourage early literacy, enhance emotional development, celebrate multiculturalism, promote character growth, and strengthen family relationships.

Description Review

Although some mommies drive motorcycles, and others drive minivans; some mommies go fishing while others go shopping, all mommies want their children to be who they are. That's Todd Parr's story, and he's sticking with it (as reinforced by his It's Okay to Be Different, This Is My Hair, and lots more funky, friendly picture books).

Using his trademark style of brightly colored stick figures, with bold outlined smiley faces for heads, Parr portrays a world of diversity and peace in his simple, esteem-boosting titles. Moms are celebrated here (naturally, you'll find dads in The Daddy Book), in all their traditional, eccentric, athletic, hip, nurturing glory. Each spread shows moms doing their thing: dancing moms opposite swimming moms, short-hair moms next to big-hair moms, and work-at-home moms across from work-in-big-buildings moms. The refrain is that all moms love their kids: "All mommies like to hang out with you!" "All mommies like to watch you sleep!" The Mommy Book is reassuring and fun. -- Emilie Coulter
