Mom Me is a playful picturebook from a little boy's point of view, about what a mommy is--and what she is not! "'No jumping on Mommy!' And my mommy is not a trampoline. / 'Rat-a-tat-tat hurts!' And my mommy is not a drum... / But... / my mommy can be an airplane, Whoosh! / and a race car, Zoom!" The exuberant illustrations, crafted with care in watercolor and hot-pressed watercolor paper, add just the right spice of excitement to this adorable read-aloud story about the irritations (when a child has an apple core to get rid of, mommy's purse is not the place to put it!) and wonders of the parent-child bond.
