Mother’s Day Book GIVEAWAY: Mommy Mine by Tim Warnes with illustrations by Jane Chapman (illustrator of Bear Snores On)

Why we love this book:

Look at these illustrations. How can you resist that sweetness?! We absolutely love these colorful, sweet, playful illustrations of Mommies and their little ones. But this book is so much more. The creative approach of using verbs and adjectives to describe different Mommies is fun and playful. This book also reminds all of us Mommies to be active and engaged with our own children.

For the Classroom:

This book can be inspiration for your students to create their own “Mommy Mine!” illustrations. Let the children create an illustration of them with their own Mommy, doing one of their favorite activities. Then they can select a verb or adjective to describe their Mommy.

Some examples from the book:

Mommy full, Mommy grubby, Mommy croak, Mommy chubby (You might discourage that chubby description!)

Mommy jump, Mommy funny

Icky-sticky, Mommy honey

So how do you win this book? We’re having a little “Mother’s Day Photo Caption” contest.

Yes, this is our lovely Mother on one of our yearly family camping trips. We recently found this photo and thought it was just hilarious. And yep, that’s a great, big knife.

Here’s how you enter our Mother’s Day Book GIVEAWAY CONTEST: Write a caption for the Mother’s Day photo above and you’ll be entered to win our Mother’s Day Book GIVEAWAY.

Just for the record, we also found sweet photos like this . . .

and this one.

We cherish all of these photos and all of the special memories they bring back of our childhood with our mother. She was always a mother who was active and engaged just like the Mommies in our book GIVEAWAY. Now the grandchildren and great-grandchildren keep her busy, active and engaged!
