My Mummy and Me would make a lovely present for a young child to give to Mummy for Mother’s Day. It’s a gorgeously illustrated celebration of a mother / child relationship 🙂
The Story: A little mouse tells his / her mummy how much he loves her and what s/he likes doing with her, for example, splashing and being tickled. The basic message of the story is that the little mouse is happy when s/he is with mummy.
This is a beautiful, sturdy board book with a soft, cushioned cover. Although she is now a bit old for this book my daughter loves to look at the beautiful muted colour pictures of a mother and her little mouse having fun together and still enjoys listening to the story. She thinks that the mouse is female but I love the way that no gender is specified so that the reader can come to their own conclusion.
For a toddler or younger child the short text is perfect. The story conveys a message of love and shows a happy relationship between mother and child. The relationship makes the little mouse feels good and gives him / her the confidence to do anything. It is a great book for mum and child to snuggle up and enjoy together.
