There’s no denying it – mummies are great. And it’s our job to make sure our kids know that too.
To help get that message across, here are some brilliant books about mummies for you to share with your little people…
The Mummy Shop
By Abie Longstaff and Lauren Beard
Who wants a mum who makes you tidy your room, help out with supermarket AND tells you to go to bed when you don’t really want to? Not one little boy. That’s why he gives The Mummy Shop a call.
But when one new mummy just cooks carrots for his tea, and another makes him wear itchy woollen pants, he soon realises he had the perfect mummy all along.
My Mummy is Magic
By Dawn Richards and Jane Massey
This simple rhyming book is so super cute and is perfect for children under three. This magic mummy plays fun games, cooks tasty food, reads brilliant stories and can even cheer up a grumpy toddler (perhaps she’s got some tips?!).
“My Mummy knows just what I like, she knows just what to say.
And if I hurt myself my mummy magics it away.”
Five Minutes Peace
By Jill Murphy
All Mrs Large wants is five minutes peace from the craziness of family life so she sneaks up for a quick bath…but it’s not long before the children all join her!
This classic story is so true to life as a mum that it will have you smiling in recognition.
By Christopher MacGregor and Emma Yarlett
An ode to mummies who work away from home, Mummy’s Home is a reassuring story that helps young children understand that mummy will be back.
Join one family as they prepare for mummy going away and see how they cope, keep in touch and remember her while she’s gone.
