Just in Time for Mother’s Day – A Trio from Penguin

The Children's Book Review    

Delightful, beautifully and interestingly illustrated, geared to family reading and family life - - and especially celebrations of mother and motherhood - perfecto books for this time of year for the reader or the read to.

“Your Mommy Was Just Like You” by Kelly Bennett, illustrated by David Walker ($16.99, geared to ages 3-5) is a winner showcasing as it does in words and images the girlhood times all mothers went through and still experience. NOTABLE.

“A Suitcase Surprise for Mommy” by Cat Cora, illustrated by Joy Allen ($16.99, geared to ages 3-5) is all about how one little boy makes parting with his mother easier when she is required to travel for work. WINNING WORK. 

“The Great Big Book of Families” by Mary Hoffman, art by Ros Asquith ($16.99, ages 3-5) is a work that shows no matter the differences among families there is more about them that is alike than most of  us ever think about. This book is a charmer from its clever and cartoon-like illustrations to its important message. GO FOR IT.
