My Mom Is the Best Circus

My Mom Is the Best Circus Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This humorous story celebrates mom as the best one-woman show on earth as she juggles everything that goes on during the day—she's a ringmaster, a wild beast tamer, a magician, and sometimes a clown. But her best stunt of all is the sandman show, when it's time for a good-night story. 

Luciana Navarro Powell's colorful, humorous illustrations are a perfect complement to her spirited, rhyming text.

Review:

"In this board book, a boy sings the praises of his mother, whose abilities are enough to make her a hit under the big top. Among her talents, she can juggle breakfast, 'tame wild beasts' (do laundry), and 'walk on stilts' (wear high heels): 'My mom is the best circus,/ from sunrise to sundown./ Sometimes she's a magician,/ other times, a clown.' In her brightly colored, gently textured art, Powell captures the essence of a do-it-all mom, whose bold purple pantsuit establishes her as the ringmaster of this family. Up to age 4. Agent: East West Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
