My Mommy Hung the Moon

Each time I hear of a celebrity that has penned a children's book I am a bit skeptical. It is hard for me to decide if the book they have created would have been published if their name was not attached to it. And yet, I always look forward to the books that Jamie Lee Curtis writes for children. My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story is Curtis' ninth childrens book- and one I absolutely loved.

Rhyming text, bright illustrations by Laura Cornell (Jamie's partner in her writing endeavors), and a sweet story are what hooked me. It is a treat to watch the innocent way in which this young child truly believes that a mother is able to do absolutely everything.

"She grows all the food and makes it from scratch...
and when she bakes me cookies, it's a Big Momma Batch!"

From baking cookies, to driving in car pools, and rowing ships, moms can do it all.
A great baby shower book, Mother's Day book, gift for mothers young and old, as well as a sweet read aloud for children. My Mommy Hung the Moon is one of my favorites by Jamie Lee Curtis.
*A copy of this book was received from the publisher.

Sometimes, when I read your sweet reviews about sweet books I wish I was an Elementary Librarian, too. Thanks for visiting my blog.
