Review: I Love My Mummy by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd

Mummies are good for lots of things – wiping noses, singing in the car, helping with wee-wee’s! This sweet story tells us the best things about mummies from a baby’s point of view.

I think one of my favourite things about this book is how well it portrays what a mum’s typical day can be like. For all those friends who think being a stay at home mum means I am ‘a lady who lunches’ then this book shows, thanks to the words and the pictures, that most mums actually spend their time trying to make themselves vaguely presentable whilst looking after a small clinging monster, wiping noses, drying tears, singing loudly in the car whilst on the way to do the shopping (either for purposes of entertainment, or to keep certain small people from taking an unscheduled nap!), monitoring behaviour when out and about, cooking acceptable meals, wiping dirty bottoms, playing at bath time, reading stories…well, you know how it is!
