Candlewick. Mar. 2019. 32p. Tr $15.99. ISBN 9781536205671.
PreS-Gr 1–A little girl highlights all of the things that her superhero mother does for her everyday. She acknowledges that all women are unique, but she got lucky with her superhero mom. Superhero mom can mend a mixer, make pancakes, and tame tangled hair. She goes on to “fly” to the bus so she won’t be late to school, makes up fun games and even wipes her tears when she gets hurt. When she can’t find her favorite teddy bear, her mom looks everywhere. The close connection between girls and mothers is illustrated in the pictures and content. The boldly-colored cartoon illustrations are energetic and expressive.
VERDICT The book’s message makes a fun read-aloud at storytime and solid addition to Mother’s Day–themed books.
