What I thought about it

Oh, The Things My Mom Will Do is about children doing things with their mom and what their mom does to help them.

Why I picked this book…

My dad picked this for me. He thought it would be a fun read and I got to get it from NetGalley. That was awesome because this book isn’t out yetSmile But, it comes out soon.

What I liked about this story…

I liked how they put lots of different children in the book with their moms. It was cool to see how different children and pets did special things with their moms. I really liked the illustrations! The artwork made the book very bright and went with the story well.

Would I recommend other kids read this book?

Yes! I would recommend Oh, The Things My Mom Will Do. I think kids and moms will love it. Watch out moms may cry. (Sometimes my mom cries in mommy-kid books.)

Have fun reading,
4 Moons: This was great.
