Mommy Ever After

Familius. Mar. 2022. 32p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781641704519.
PreS-K–This fanciful, feel-good story follows a mother-daughter pair, who are white, as the daughter grows from baby to little girl and faces new experiences with a mixture of wonder and fear. From her first time seeing the ocean to a thunderstorm to the first day of school, her mother offers the same comforting refrain: “Because we are not always going to feel happy, but I am always going to be your mommy.” Ugolotti’s pretty, pastel artwork featuring flowers and stars, mermaids and ice cream, complements the fairy-tale inspired prose.
VERDICT This sweet uplifting story is an ideal gift, sure to be a treasured reread.
