Mom School by Rebecca Van Slyke- ADVISABLE

Van Slyke, Rebecca. Mom School, PICTURE BOOK. Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 2015. $16.99. One little girl imagines how her mom became so good at being her mom. By attending Mom School of course! At mom school, moms learn how to bait a fish hook, throw a pitch so kids can hit it, read stories, and tuck you into bed at night. This is a really sweet story with a great mix of activities that moms learn how to perfect. I really liked that there was a solid mix of things that moms can do that weren’t gender stereotypes. I thought it was wonderful that the mom was the child’s ideal parent and that she thought she was doing everything just right. It’s a fun premise for a story for both parents and children to imagine. PRE-K, K-3- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by: Shay, School Librarian.
