“The Best Mother” – a Fun New Book for Kids and Their Moms

The Best Mother

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Out April 2018, just in time for Mother’s Day, “The Best Mother” is a fun new book from C.M. Surrisi.

“The Best Mother” is a unique story, and I was intrigued as I read the book.

Maxine wakes up one day, wondering if other mothers are much different from hers, and perhaps would not ask her to brush her teeth or tackle other responsibilities.  Yet, after she asks moms for their thoughts, she finds moms do expect their children to be responsible.

While I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the book, it was interesting to read this book when we did.  We had just watched a kid’s movie where the children are fighting in the backseat of the car, and the parents have to yell over the commotion to ask the kids to be quiet.  My daughter remarked that she thought I was the only parent who did that, which I found surprising!  The Best Mother is a story from a child’s perspective, and comes full circle, as Maxine realizes her mother is of course the best mother!


The Best Mother by C.M. Surrisi and illustrated by Diane Goode is available April 3, 2018.

    I have heard so many kids mention this in one way or another. It’s a perfect way to introduce a child to the concept that many parents all want for similar things so that their children are their best selves.
