First sentence: When I go to school, I learn how to cut and glue paper, count to 100, and sing silly songs. My mom says she went to school, too. I think she went to Mom School.
Premise/plot: A little girl is convinced that her Mom went to Mom School to learn how to be the BEST BEST mom in the whole world. She imagines all the things her Mom might have learned at Mom School. Things such as:
- learning how to go grocery shopping without losing any kids
- learning how to pitch a ball slowly so a kid can actually hit it
- learning how to go on scary rides
- learning how to talk on the phone and do hair at the same time
- learning how to cook and listen to silly made-up songs at the same time
- learning how to make forts out of couch cushions
My thoughts: This one was super-sweet and adorable. Predictably so, yes. But it's irresistibly charming in some ways. If you're looking for a sweet mom-and-daughter read that celebrates family life. I really love the little girl's pigtails. I do.
