My only problem with this book, and the reason why it did not receive more stars, is the way in which the pre-surgery mommy is so attractively illustrated. Why not give "cocoon mommy" a few more folds and sags to represent the sorry tramps who will be reading this book to their children before emerging from their surgery chrysalis? Your kids don't know you're ugly yet, so shouldn't we be teaching them the difference?
My suggestion for parents having plastic surgery: Tell your children the procedure. Tell them that you will look like a mummy for a few days. AND, tell them that it is your personal choice to go through with the surgery, that you are unhappy with your body, that you don't like how you look. Use this as an example: learn to love yourself, it will make life easier.
Now, if you will excuse me, Rod Serling and I have to organize a book burning.
Then, I grasped THEY MEANT IT!
Why didn't they name it "Why Can't I Recognize My Mother Anymore?", or "Understanding Silicone For The Preteen Set"?
MOTHERS---THINK WHAT A TERRIBLE SET OF IDEAS THIS GIVES YOUR DAUGHTERS!
In Dr. Salzhauer's world, it is OK to teach young girls that the only path to self-esteem is to have potentially life-threatening surgery to make their bosoms larger, & thus please a man.
I say--no, it isn't.
Our Country, Land of the Free, home of the Superficial.
A recent media commentator wrote:
"The picture book explains all about mom's new boobs, resculptured nose and liposuctioned tush. What's the lesson here? I can just hear the child saying, "I can't wait until I can pay to have someone make me pretty!"
