Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—A tender story about the many ways a mother is magic to her daughter. She chases away monsters and clouds, kisses boo-boos and makes them better, and bakes birthday cakes. Suitable for storytimes, times alone with Mommy, and even beginning readers, the story also touches on how the child is magic, too—she makes her mommy laugh when she sings and dances. The ending looks toward the future, when the little girl will grow up to be just like her mother. Godon's pastel-and-paint, full-bleed spreads in gentle hues exude warmth. They complement the text and the resulting mood is sweet without being cloying.—Nancy Kunz, Tuckahoe Public Library, NY

From Booklist

In this companion title to My Daddy Is a Giant (2005), a little girl praises her mom's seemingly supernatural greatness. On each double-page spread, the girl lists a new way that her mother is amazing: Mommy can chase monsters from the closet, guess secrets before they are told, swim faster than a dolphin, and make hurts disappear. The brief, simple words pair nicely with uncluttered, bold-lined illustrations that amplify the tenderness between the child and her mother, who is portrayed as a large, strong, capable, and loving presence. Best of all is the girl's realization that she has talents of her own: "When I sing and dance, I always make my mommy laugh." As in the team's previous title, this warm picture book encourages kids to notice and feel the small family moments that add up to love. Gillian Engberg

By DJ Joe Sixpack HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on September 12, 2007
Format: Hardcover
A gem. This mommy book really rings true... heck it made my wife cry when she read it with our kid! Simple text and large, expansive illustrations combine to magical effect, showing a mommy who chases away monsters, shares secrets, and who can even part the clouds and make the weather nice by wearing her pretty summer dress. Unabashedly sentimental, yet artfully done, this celebrates the bond between parent and child in an imaginative, evocative style. One of the best I-love-my-mommy books you'll ever find.
