Where Does Mommy Go? by Shelley Hallier and illustrated by Richele Collins is a hard cover illustrated children's book focused on bonding with mom.
Hallier, a first-time author living in Missouri, is a mommy of three who spent 12 years working in a corporate job. Right after her twins were born she wrote this book for other working moms to share with their kids.
Suited for reading to toddlers and preschoolers, this book is also fun for older children to read to a parent. The colorful and whimsical prose and illustrations depict moms in all kinds of roles both extraordinary and ordinary -- from super hero to pediatrician -- that are certain to ignite a child's imagination and love for their mommy.
The story also sets the stage for inspiring interactive dialogue so little ones can be reassured that though their moms work outside the home, they still are missed and loved.
The book's closing lines get the intended purpose across succinctly.
She could be working in an office, as busy as can be
But I know no matter where she is she'd rather be with ME.
Where Does Mommy Go? $14.99 is available on Amazon and directly from the author at WhereMommyGoes.com
Do you talk to your child about your job and what you do all day? Does your son or daughter ever ask if you'd rather be with her or him than go to work?
