M.O.M (Mom Operating Manual) by Doreen Cronin illus by Laura Cornell

M.O.M (Mom Operating Manual) by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Laura Cornell was a thrill to discover.  I love Laura Cornell's illustrations and recognized the her art work as soon as I saw the cover. I am also a big fan of Doreen Cronin who has a great writing style.   This is a fun book to read.   This is the kind of book I would have loved to read at story time because I know the parents would get a kick out of it.   I like how it has been published now and not just in time for Mother's Day.   Although it would make a perfect new mother gift.   Some might say the language is a bit too adult for kids to understand but since I don't believe in talking down to children I think it is worded perfectly.  


  1. This is an interesting book! I heard from a friend that Doreen Cronin is one of her favorite writers because she has her own style of writing. It will be a great gift for Mother's day and to an expecting friend.

  2. Whether you're looking for a nice gift for your mother or mom to be friend, this book is perfect and awesome!
