There's a plethora of mommy-themed picture books out there. Publishers know their audience well! There's the books we all know and love... Mommy Hugs, Are You My Mother, Is Your Mama a Llama, Does a Kangaroo have a Mother Too, Counting Kisses.... But perhaps you're in the mood for something new!

It's official - I love Amy Krouse Rosenthal. (She's the author of Sugar Cookies which I reviewed back around Valentine's Day.) In this adorable new book, a little girl goes through that difficult chore of putting her mother to bed. Kids will love this clever twist to a classic nighttime routine. I loved the illustrations which add to the short, simple sentences that make up the book.

I have no clue if your kids will like it, but you're guaranteed to either love or hate this book. The premise is simple: a little boy tells why his mother is so smart. He praises her for all the things she does for him... baking cookies, dancing the polka, playing with sparklers, saving a halloween costume. Each activity is illustrated with soft pastel paintings of the mother facing the reader. You'll either resonate with this mother or hate the high standard she sets us moms, but either way it's a nice platform for discussing the unique memories your own child has of special moments with you!

I know, I know, I've already talked about how much I love this book, but I couldn't leave it off a list of Mother's Day books (particularly as it's my favorite)!
