Description

Imagine what would happen if moms went to Mom School!

In this adorable kid’s-eye view of what would happen if Mom went to school, a little girl imagines Mom School, where all moms learn their amazing skills, like fixing a bike tire and baking cupcakes. With warm, funny illustrations and a fun role-reversal story in which moms act like kids, young readers will love imagining what would happen if their own moms went to Mom School.

"An appealing addition to read at Mother’s Day and throughout the year."—School Library Journal

"Gently funny and knowing, it’s a good bet for moments of mother-child bonding."—Publishers Weekly

[It's] refreshing to see the diverse array of moms participating in fishing and sports in addition to baking sweet treats. This would make a unique choice for back-to-school time."—Booklist
