"This book is really a wonderful celebration of all things involved in being a mother to a young child-both the enjoyable and the more challenging aspects."-- Youth Services Book Review
"Gorgeously illustrated, refreshingly real and oh so touching, we think this book is just glorious."-- Well Read
"What's most striking about the book, though, is its use of intense neon colors both for details and large swaths of the illustrations and for the text itself. The final metaphor says it all: "A mother's a home." "-- Kirkus Reviews
"Children's Book of the Week
Daniel Hahn is a careful, creative translator and his lovely sing-along lines avoid cliche. The tone is never cloying-a feat in a paean to mums for this age group."
