We all know mothers are special, but what makes Mummy marvellous? Is it because she is “pretty and fancy and bright. Sparkle, sparkle, shine?” Or because she is “scary and noisy and loud. Raah, raah, boo?”
This is a softly illustrated, gentle book about what makes mummies so lovable – even when she is “grumpy and grouchy and cross. Grumble, grumble, roar” – that is perfect for this time of the year particularly. Little ones will translate the world and words of Baby and Mother Elephant into their own lives and have lots of stories to share about why their mummies are marvellous. An opportunity to reflect on the important role mothers play in families.
Teachers notes are available.
