Book Review/Giveaway: You Made Me a Mother. Ends June 17th


About the Book: In this beautiful celebration of motherhood, the universal message of unconditional love for a child shines through. Laurenne Sala’s heartwarming text, accompanied by New York Times bestselling artist Robin Preiss Glasser’s charming illustrations, creates a firsthand look at the powerful bond between mother and child from pregnancy to birth and beyond.

I felt you.
You were a pea.
Then a lemon.
Then an eggplant.

About the Author: Laurenne Sala lives in Los Angeles, where she likes to look at the ocean and wonder what is on the other side. She thinks that riding a bicycle down a hill is the best feeling in the world. And that eating a big bunch of blueberries is right up there too. She has written all sorts of things, but none as fun as this, her first picture book


My Review: This book is about the celebration of motherhood, and it captured the unconditional love a mother has for her child/children perfectly. From the first kick in her belly, to her eating healthy, talking and singing, to getting the baby crib ready for when he/she enters the world. Then baby arrivals and he/she is healthy with 10 toes. Mom isn’t always prefect and can get nervous, but she does what she can to make sure baby is happy, rocked to sleep and fed.

The illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser shows the bond between a mother and child from pregnancy to birth and beyond. A great gift for new mothers.



FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book on behalf of the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
