In Emilee’s opinion:

I loved this adorable book by Alison Moulton. This book would be the perfect gift for mothers on Mother’s Day. Alison pointed out that there are all types of mothers such as a pilot, gardener, doctor, dancer, yoga instructor, etc. She also pointed out that although mothers may have a side job, mothers want to spend quality time with their children. And even if you are a stay at home mom (like me) we find time to goof off with our children as well as do household chores. I believe that children will remember the little moments. One example from the book was “When music plays she starts to sway and sweeps me off my feet. Around the room we samba, we cha-cha and we jive.” I loved all of the rhymes and the illustrations were beautiful. I definitely recommend this sweet book to anyone.
