Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2--Each child in Mrs. Madoff's class explains how he or she will celebrate Mother's Day. Rockwell introduces a variety of youngsters, representing many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Young readers will be intrigued by the multiple ways these characters plan their festivities, which include appreciating nature, enjoying family togetherness, eating special foods, and going to a museum. The simple text and vibrant illustrations work well together, as single- and double-page paintings provide glimpses of the activities described by each student. The warm hues and smiles all around show the affection shared by these families. As a bonus, step-by-step directions for making flowers with construction paper, pipe cleaners, and buttons are included. This Mother's Day delight is sure to be in high demand.--Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. A mother-daughter team adds to a winning streak of classroom books centering on young children's preparations for important days with this celebration of mothers. The Rockwells introduce a variety of different mothers, including a single mom and a grandmother who is raising her deceased daughter-in-law's daughter. As Mother's Day approaches, children in Mrs. Madoff's diverse classroom describe what they will be doing with their mothers on the big day. Lizzy Rockwell's bright double-page spreads show the activities--from hiking in the mountains and holding a baby shower for a mother's niece to taking an artist mom to the museum. Appended are directions for making paper flowers with a button center, just like the flowers kids make in Mrs. Madoff's class. This winsome, instructive book may focus on Mother's Day, but it can be read anytime. Connie Fletcher

Format: Hardcover
I read this book to my class for Mothers Day. We visit Mrs Madoffs class as we have just about every holiday. (I want to be in her class, she is so nice)! The children discuss the different ways that they will celebrate the holiday, making breakfast, snuggling, and various other ways. The children were asked to bring in a button for class. The children used the button to make a tissue paper flower as a gift. The book gives step by step directions. As always Anne deals with the difficulties of the holday with a student who was celebrating with her grandmother as her mother had passed away. The craft is really cute, the children and mothers spent lots of time picking out their button and had little stories about why they chose that button. Mom's didn't know what the button was for and were so surprised that it was to make a flower. Really great!
