" 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.

" Via Mother's Day Minis (2)A very interesting story and watching the juxtaposed characters as Aunt Imogene is showered with gifts from her son Fred and how mom is given nothing but the simplest of gifts. Material goods aren't everything, and this story makes sure to make the moral loud and clear. " said.

" Have you ever forgot about Mother's Day and went to get her something at the last minute? What did you get her? This picture book was good and I liked how it related to what some p[eople go through before Mother's Day. I would recommend it to any child that has to get a present for Mother's Day. " said.

"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.
