This book is for you and your mum.

Draw, decorate, colour in, count, spot the mum, make a butterfly (or two) and then present the book to your mum for any special occasion: birthday, Xmas, Mother's Day ... or just because.

An interactive picture book to personalise for your mum.

Out in bookstores in time for Mother’s Day giving, what could be more cherished than a book completed by your own child. There are activities to share; colour the flowers, write a wish inside the bubbles, play hide & seek, go on an ice-cream hunt, help the tooth fairy find the tooth. Thirty two pages of fun colouring and activities for you to share and keep as a lasting reminder of your little ones thoughts and dreams.

Dot loved this book! The only thing she loves more than craft and colouring-in is drawing pictures of her mum and the first pages of the book have gorgeous frames to draw pictures of Me and my mum. Jay didn’t get a look in with this book so I was delighted to see that I Love My Dad Because will be out in August 2019, just in time for Father’s Day.

The book, designed and illustrated by Alissa Dinallo, features bright engaging colours and the illustrations have a childlike whimsy about them that is sure to appeal to young children.

I Love My Mum Because is an interactive picture book perfect for ages 3 – 7

Dot & Jay's rating 5/5  ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
