Mother, May I?

by Lynn Plourde
Illustrated by Amy Wummer
Dutton Children’s Books, 2004

“Mother, May I, on your special day,
be the mom to you today?

Now you be a good girl,
and I’ll bring you a big surprise . . .

Open wide!”

The girl in this book brings her mom a big surprise all right–breakfast in bed. It’s a breakfast that she concocts herself, stirring together apple cider, pickles, mustard, marshmallows, and more! But that’s not all the girl does to help her mom. She does her mom’s makeup, cleans the house, and even helps with mom’s office work from her briefcase. Oh, that poor mom! Amy Wummer’s detailed, humorous illustrations capture both the chaos and love packed into the pages of this book.
