9780374400262: My Mom

We first meet Mom over a cup of coffee, clad in a floral robe. The robe is ever present as her child describes her wondrous abilities and traits. The ultimate message that shines forth is: "I love my mom. And you know what? SHE LOVES ME! (And she always will.)"

"With simplicity, strength, and complete understanding of children's perceptions, Browne uses the voice of an unseen child to praise one mother – and, by extension, all moms." – Booklist

"The sentiment is so pure that this tale will be a beloved addition to a family's repertoire of stories to treasure." – Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

ANTHONY BROWNE has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and was a recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Award for the body of his work. My Mom is a companion book to My Brother, a Best Children's Book of the Year, Bank Street College, and the best-selling My Dad. He lives in Kent, England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–While Browne has paid homage to the art of motherhood in the past, his latest exploration offers unadulterated affection and adoration. Choosing not to contrast the main character with her mate in this setting allows the author to put aside the sophomoric and rough-hewn behavior of his typical father figures in favor of a gentle sweetness and good-natured humor. Mom is first pictured in a floral bathrobe, coffee cup in hand; readers glean that, "She's nice, my mom." Each ensuing page portrays her many talents and Browne's clever conceits. As a "fantastic cook," she oversees an array of cakes à la artist Wayne Thiebaud, one sporting a gorilla face. As the musical angel, her pose re-creates a Piero della Francesca painting. When viewers see what she could be, they are treated to a movie-star mom, dress billowing upward like Marilyn Monroe's. In each scene, the flowers-and-hearts fabric is part of her costume, as are the pink, fuzzy slippers, where possible. This loving tribute is sure to be a hit with parents and children at storytimes and for one-on-one sharing.– Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library
