" A cute children's book. I can still read Anderson's touch in the short story :) and the story really was very nice and realistic. " said.

" No time for a review. Good book though. " said.

" A creative solution to the problem of what to get for mother leads to the playful title of this 1999 Laurie Halse Anderson title. " said.

" I am a fan of Laurie Halse Anderson's YA work. Before doing that (was Speak the first, in 1999?) she wrote children's books. This one is unremarkable, but.. nice.. and the best thing about it is the beautiful artwork by Dorothy Donohue. Anderson is best when there's an edge to her prose, snark, sarcasm. None of that here, alas. " said.

" Charity doesn't know what to get her mother for Mother's Day. She find some inspiration after reflecting on her cousin's gift for her aunt and observing her mother's busy life. The style and illustrations of this story seemed sweet and dated to me. A good choice if you need a good variety of selections for various holidays; one I'll skip for my small school library selection. " said.

" No Time for Mother's Day is a collaboration between an excellent author and an excellent illustrator, and the partnership works very well. Laurie Halse Anderson's fresh, funny, and meaningful story is captured perfectly by the surprisingly detailed, in-depth artwork of Dorothy Donohue, and the result is a very good picture book.

With only two days before Mother's Day, Charity (I love that name!) has no idea what to give her mother. She wants it to be something that will really be used and appreciated, unlike some of the gifts that she has given in the past. Her mother is allergic to flowers and never has time to eat candy when it's given to her. What sort of gift could Charity give her mother that would really be enjoyed? With the hours ticking by on the night before Mother's Day and no ideas springing to mind, Charity suddenly realizes that there is something valuable she can give her mother, something that won't cost any money at all. By really tuning in to her mother's needs, Charity finds the one gift that her mother wanted most all along.

A creative, funny story, but also very thoughtful, No Time for Mother's Day is the kind of book that Laurie Halse Anderson has consistently produced for many years. Equally at home writing fiction for teenagers, older kids or the picture-book set, she has had a prolonged impact on young readers that will continue to reverberate within them as they grow older. I would definitely give two and a half stars to No Time for Mother's Day, and I recommend it for anyone seeking an enjoyable, well-balanced picture book.

"This is a fun story, one to which both parents and kids will be able to relate. The little girl wants to find the perfect present for her mom but none of the usual gifts seem quite right; finally, she finds something that her mom desperately needs and is able to deliver the perfect gift! :-) I like that we have a hard-working mom (both as a mother and as a business owner) and a husband that really seems to understand his wife and a daughter who notices how hard it is to be a mom, and what might make that task a little easier! Unfortunately, I was not a fan of the illustrations at all so that lessened my enjoyment of the book overall. But, it's still a fun read for Mother's Day." said.
