The angst mothers and children feel over business travel often goes unspoken, yet is a common issue young families struggle with sometimes weekly. Now there s a special book to help both kids and moms feel better about their time apart. There are books on going potty, the first day of school, going to the doctor, etc., but, until now, nothing was available to help children understand why mommy is leaving or reassure them that she's coming back. Featured in Working Mother Magazine as a Top Pick for Children s Books, this highly acclaimed, beautifully illustrated book is garnering sighs of relief from working moms across the country. Order your copy of My Mommy s on a Business Trip for the special children, moms, co-workers, and friends in your life and give them a unique, heartwarming gift they ll always remember. The book includes two colorful maps - of the world and the US - so you can show your little one where you're going and where you've been.

About the Author:

Phaedra Cucina is a marketing specialist and mother of two young children who has worked in corporate America since the early 1990 s. My Mommy s on a Business Trip is Phaedra s first book, and the first in an upcoming series designed to explain the world of work to small children in a positive, meaningful way. Phaedra wrote this book because she needed it. When required to travel for work, she couldn t find a simply way to explain to her own young daughter what was happening, who was quite confused and upset. Determined to find a solution for herself and other working parents, Phaedra set out to write a book that would easily explain the adult concept of work to young kids. My Mommy s on a Business Trip is truly written from the heart of a mom in the trenches providing for her family while keeping things together at home. Phaedra grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, and now lives in Austin, Texas. She earned her BA in Marketing at Michigan State University and MBA at Thunderbird The American Graduate School of International Business. Phaedra has lived abroad in Italy, loves to travel, and spends as much of her free time as possible with her husband and two young children.


This book lovingly demonstrates how those of us who travel for work leave a positive legacy for our kids by demonstrating how to be courageous when we are apart and grateful for the times we are together. I wish I had this book for my children when they were young! --Shawn Dennis, Chief Marketing Officer, The American Girl Company

A must for every mommy executive! This book should be a staple in the HR department to be given to women executives who have a family. --Jennifer Suarez, SVP Workforce Development, CBS

The balance of being a mother and a professional are perfectly captured in this delightful book. My first trip away from my daughter was at just three months old. Today, as a young adult, she feels our phone conversations during those various separations gave her a strong sense of independence and confidence. This story is a special insight into all of those unique emotions toward finding that balance. I recommend Mommy's on a Business Trip to all moms. --Becky Higgins, VP of Marketing for Zale Corporation
