A Little Book About Me and My Mom

Illus. by Jedda Robaard. Barron’s, $7.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7641-6671-6
In this trim interactive scrapbook, readers are invited to fill in blanks by answering questions about their mothers and themselves, as well as adding their own drawings and photos. A raven-haired brother and sister, spitting images of their rosy-cheeked mother, serve as guides throughout. Children can fill in where Mom was born, her favorite music, pastimes, and pets as a child (space is left for them to add their own corresponding interests, pets, etc.), as well as activities that they currently enjoy. Robaard’s cheery scenes of the small family, painted in airy, delicate watercolors, supply a light narrative framework, and a Mother’s Day–ready card and envelope are also included. Ages 6–10. (Mar.)
