Review: Mother's Mother's Day by Lorna Balian


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
It's Mother's Day - a time for visits and gifts. A charming family of mice are planning to see their mothers. Hazel and her mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother all go to see their mothers on this special day. But where did Great-great-great-grandmother go?
MY TAKE:

I'm a big fan of children's books that are well-illustrated. Mother's Mother's Day definitely fits the bill. The cute illustrations could belong in a card. They definitely drive the story and give it a classic feel.

The book is about how Hazel and her family spends Mother's Day. This book made me laugh. I wasn't sure where this book was going at first. I was thinking perhaps it would go the melodramatic route, but I was pleased to see that the author went in a different direction.

Thanks to NetGalley and Star Bright Books for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. The illustrations are beautiful.
  2. The story is funny and cute.
  3. The ending was a little bit unexpected, in a good way.

THE BAD:
  1. It's a little bit unlikely for mice to have such long lifespans. :P

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Because it was such a very. very special day, she was taking her some kernels of popcorn.
READ IT IF:
  1. You like fun children's books.
  2. You are looking for a Mother's Day read for your child.
  3. You like mice.
