Reviews of Can Mommy Go To Work?
“After giving it to J to read, I noticed something I rarely ever see. J was COMPLETELY IMMERSED IN A BOOK. I saw him snuggled up in the loveseat DEVOURING this book like his Mom so often does in that same “Lovestyle” seat. Guess what else J did. HE READ IT AGAIN FOR A SECOND TIME! When I saw that, I said “Hold Up, Wait One…….MINUTE!” *Trick Daddy Vox*
What’s got my son so interested in this book? I immediately decided to read J’s book report to find out what was captivating him.”
“Great book! Extremely relatable to myself and my child. As a working mom and primary provider for my child, my child understands that mom too has her moments of stress and frustration. I believe it’s essential for our children to interstate that grown-ups make mistakes too. We are growing and learning together in life. Most importantly, we value the importance of forgiveness along the way. Grateful to see this in a children’s book and so well illustrated!”
