My favorite mommy book!
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2015
I read A LOT of books about the mom-child relationship from kissy/lovey types (which were so not me) through to religious books (that just boxed moms into certain roles and tasks). After all that reading and some returns... this book is hands down my favorite mommy book!
One of the main reasons I like this book so much is that the book manages to represent the mom-child relationship without relying on too many specific tasks... which not every mom will necessarily fit into. So instead of saying something like mommy takes me to the park and plays with me on the slide, this book instead focuses on the feelings a mom provides in the relationship like mommy's smile shines so bright and cheers me up inside when I am feeling sad. By having the book focus on feelings and deeper connections to one's parent, the book becomes deeper and far more valuable that any other mom-child book I have read for toddlers.
The book covers how the mom provides cheer when a child is sad, forgiveness when uh-ohs happen, love through actions, healing/caring of wounds, encouraging joy/laughter, calming fears, exampling faith, and singing lullabies.
