A mommy is a special person. She knows just how to kiss a boo-boo to make it feel better and how to do hair-dos. When you need an audience for your puppet show, a mommy will always watch. Lift the flaps and see all the ways a mommy is wonderful. This celebration of mothers is ideal for Mother's Day and for sharing throughout the year.
