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.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
Books Given in 2012: 380
Books Given in 2013: 330
Books Given in 2014: 257
Books Given in 2015: – 127
