More than 440,000 families have treasured "The Little Big Book for Moms "since it was published in the spring of 2000 This beloved classic's 10th anniversary edition features a fresh cover design, new vintage art, and a new introduction. Still the perfect book for every mom who doesn't want her little ones to miss out on the classic tale of the Princess and the Pea but is also infused with the power of Maya Angelou's "Life Doesn't Frighten Me"; who laughs aloud over Ogden Nash and adores "Charlotte's Web." For the mom who wants to be reminded of the words to "Rub-a-Dub-Dub," to play I"'m a Little Teapot" and "Itsy, Bitsy, Spider," to learn how to make water music and who wants to make recipes that are especially yummy like Frozen Chocolate Bananas. In other words this is a book for moms who want to be great moms and who want to bring great things to their little ones.
And, when everyone has finally gone to sleep at night, there are essays just for mom by Anne Lamott, Susan Cheever, and Amy Herrick.
