ALA Booklist
A mother-daughter team adds to a winning streak of classroom books centering on young children's preparations for important days with this celebration of mothers. The Rockwells introduce a variety of different mothers, including a single mom and a grandmother who is raising her deceased daughter-in-law's daughter. As Mother's Day approaches, children in Mrs. Madoff's diverse classroom describe what they will be doing with their mothers on the big day. Lizzy Rockwell's bright double-page spreads show the activities--from hiking in the mountains and holding a baby shower for a mother's niece to taking an artist mom to the museum. Appended are directions for making paper flowers with a button center, just like the flowers kids make in Mrs. Madoff's class. This winsome, instructive book may focus on Mother's Day, but it can be read anytime.

The kids in Mrs. Madoff's class take turns describing how they will celebrate Mother's Day: Eveline will make beignets for her maman; Sarah, whose mother is dead, will celebrate with her grandmother; etc. The children all sound the same, but the up-with-difference message, reinforced by the cheerful and tidy candy-colored illustrations, is welcome in a book about a day known to inspire cookie-cutter sentiments.

PreS-Gr 2-Each child in Mrs. Madoff's class explains how he or she will celebrate Mother's Day. Rockwell introduces a variety of youngsters, representing many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Young readers will be intrigued by the multiple ways these characters plan their festivities, which include appreciating nature, enjoying family togetherness, eating special foods, and going to a museum. The simple text and vibrant illustrations work well together, as single- and double-page paintings provide glimpses of the activities described by each student. The warm hues and smiles all around show the affection shared by these families. As a bonus, step-by-step directions for making flowers with construction paper, pipe cleaners, and buttons are included. This Mother's Day delight is sure to be in high demand.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
