Product Information

Celebrating ten years and nearly 500,000 copies sold, The Little Big Book for Moms is back in a special, updated 10th anniversary edition, with a revised foreword, new jacket design, new endpapers, and a new ISBN.

This charming book is packed with all the fun, magic, and wonder of early childhood in a beautifully designed, chunky little package. Illustrated throughout with early 20th-century work by artists like Jessie Wilcox Smith and Ida Waugh, this is a delicious treasure for the expectant mother to savor in anticipation, and for the new mother to share with her little ones.

Mother Goose, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, e.e. cummings, E.B. White, J.M. Barrie, Maya Angelou, Shel Silverstein, Ogden Nash and Lewis Carroll are like old friends bearing gifts of song, verse, and tales for the new child. Humpty Dumpty, Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan, and Goldilocks are but a few of the other well-loved characters who visit these pages. And there's more!

Mother and child will delight in activities like Finger Games and Hand Shadows. There are recipes for making play dough, soap bubbles, chicken soup, and apple sauce. And, when the little ones are finally asleep and mom needs reminding of how adorable they really are, there are excerpts celebrating children and motherhood by such authors as Susan Cheever and Anne Lamott.

    Comments about The Little Big Book for Moms:

    This is a terrific anthology for moms with little kids. There's stuff to read with the kids (or to refresh your own memory) like nursery rhymes, classic songs, etc., and also great literary excerpts about motherhood, as well as recipes. It's really fun to dip in and out of when you need some inspiration.
