About the book...
This charming book is about a little girl who explains to the reader about the walks she takes with her mom.
"What does mom do during our walk?"
Well she does a whole lot of things: reads, draws, knits, sun tans when she can, whines when it rains, plays in the sand if she finds a sandbox and explores the micro world around her up close and engaged, just to name a few.
"And what am I doing?"
Well I take very good care of my darling mom. I make sure my mom is supervised at all times, is getting enough fresh air into her lungs and is learning to play with other moms in the neighbourhood. It's not an easy task I can assure you. Whew!
Exhausted from her reverse-parental duties the young girl realizes it's almost the weekend and that's when she focuses on the well-being of her indoor, computer-loving dad. His turn next! Oh my! Being a responsible kid can sure take a toll on you but her beloved parents are so worth the effort!
I love the idea that the little girl is in tune with her parents needs and health and is so willing to be there for them and help them out. The illustrations are simple, uncluttered and yet so expressive. They perfectly enrich the text. I highly recommend this book.
