This is a wonderful book for kids. It can definitely stimulate their senses and imagination. Having a school for mother's where they can relax and pamper themselves is an amazing idea.
Thank you for the detailed review.

Great review! I agree that the illustrations are excellent. It's so sweet that Nene is worried about her mom.

Beautiful concept! Promoting such relationships in this stress related society, where parents move away from children due to economic issues, stand a chance on bringing value to this. Thank you!

Sounds like a cute story I may read to my daughter should I have one. I will probably take a peak at the pages a little while later, just to make sure I do want to read it to a child. A close relationship is all I hopeful for my child with me, so I like that in the book. I didnt have that with my mom, but I did with my dad so I feel I can still relate. Congratulations on BOTD.

A children's book where a little 5-year-old girl is worried about her mom when she starts Kindergarten is a cute story. The illustrations are beautiful, vibrant, and support the story told. Great review!

What a wonderful story with a fresh unique idea. Many times parents take care of the children; not the other way around.

If only there really was something called Mama's daycare. I know many mothers would love that! Nevertheless, it sounds like a fabulous story. I'm so glad that the illustrations are quality. Thanks!

Such original story about the relationship between mother and daughter. If only there's such thing as mama's day care. I'm sure a lot of mothers out there would be delighted to read this to their children.

A child taking her mother to a daycare! What a wonderful premise for a children's book. This will definitely teach children early enough that parents should also be taken care of. Thank you for this wonderful review!
