My Mom Is the Best Circus

Luciana Navarro Powell. Random/Corey, $7.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-307-93143-6
In this board book, a boy sings the praises of his mother, whose abilities are enough to make her a hit under the big top. Among her talents, she can juggle breakfast, “tame wild beasts” (do laundry), and “walk on stilts” (wear high heels): “My mom is the best circus,/ from sunrise to sundown./ Sometimes she’s a magician,/ other times, a clown.” In her brightly colored, gently textured art, Powell captures the essence of a do-it-all mom, whose bold purple pantsuit establishes her as the ringmaster of this family. Up to age 4. Agent: East West Literary Agency. (Mar.)
