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.
