The Best Mum

Publisher: New Frontier Publishing

A little girl compares her mum to the other mums she knows: why isn’t her mum as good at making dress up costumes as Katie’s mums? Why isn’t she as good at rollerskating as Scout’s mum? And when Mum starts singing opera on the bus, it’s SO EMBARRASSING! Yet, despite Mum’s dubious cooking skills and tenuous grip on timekeeping, she’s still by far the best mum in the world and gives the best cuddles.

Funny and silly with lots of brilliant detail in the illustrations by Sharon Davey, this is a celebration of all different kinds of mums – many of whom may seem perfect from the outside, but are probably just as normal as everyone else - and a reminder that mums are brilliant because they love us and show up for the important things.
