Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best of times in every season are the ones spent with Mommy. Whether it's making sand castles during summer, sewing Halloween costumes in the fall, or splashing in puddles on a rainy spring day, the fun never stops. The bond between mother and daughter is perfectly captured in lovely, rhyming text with rich, colorful illustrations—and with a special greeting card inside, kids can show their mommies just how much they love spending time together.

Review:

"A towheaded girl uses metaphors to express what her mother is to her. On the beach, she's 'a buried treasure/ in the sand and sun./ I cover her... discover her!/ What silly summer fun!' and on Thanksgiving, 'Mommy is a yummy smell/ of pumpkin pie, so sweet./ We share a meal with company,/ give thanks,/ then eat/ and eat!' Despite some syrupy moments ('Mommy is a happy tune I keep inside my heart'), Smith's sunny acrylic and watercolor illustrations are sweetly affectionate without being too sugary. Ages 3 — 6."
