Mommy’s Love

­Familius. Mar. 2022. 20p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9781641706650.
Toddler-PreS–With simple rhyming sentences and bright happy illustrations, this book lends itself to repeated readings in the comfort of a caregiver’s lap. A warm, blue-haired mom supports and loves her children no matter how they behave or struggle or feel: “If you’re strong or if you’re not, you’re the dearest one she’s got.” All characters have brown skin. Unlike many other mother-centric books, this story shows a mother of three unique children, all of whom have a turn to bond with their Mom; she rides scooters with her son and comforts one of her daughters who gets in a fight with other children over toys. The last spread shows several family photos throughout the years, with Mom in them all.
VERDICT Recommended for purchase in all public libraries where board books are popular.
