Mummy Time

Publisher: Walker Books

This warm and joyful picture book charts a day in the life of a stay-at-home mother and her two energetic children. When morning time arrives, a day of marvellous mummy time begins for the youngest boy sibling (and a lot of busyness for mummy).

Written through the eyes of the little boy, it captures both the precious and - at times chaotic -moments of the everyday routine. From morning wake-up call and getting ready, dropping big sister off at school, stops at the library, supermarket and more, mummy time is the best of times for the little boy.

The rhythmic and pacy text is great for reading aloud and gives a real sense of both the happy haze of the children’s world, as well as the tiring but loving work involved in busy motherhood. The yellow colour palette captures the warmth of everyday bonding moments between mother and children. We particularly love the subtle details in the mother’s facial expressions which parents will be able to identify with.
