Oh, The Things My Mom Will Do-Book Review


From the Cover of Oh, the Things My Mom Will Do…Because She Loves Me Through and Through by Marianne Richmond:

What a child sees as everyday routine is anything but for a mom! Oh, the Things My Mom Will Do is a celebration of the unpredictable adventure that is motherhood with its sometimes silly, always heartfelt, and wonderfully important moments—all rooted in love. This sweet and amusing book will have both moms and kids smiling with recognition while spotlighting all the different ways a mom shows her devotion.



Transfiguring Adoption gave this book 4 out of 5 Hoots based on it’s usefulness to foster and adoptive families. [Learn more about our Hoot grading system here.]

What Our Family Thought:

Our family really enjoyed this book which biological, foster, and adopted children can all enjoy. The pictures are fun and situations entertaining. We laughed as we all identified with things happening in the story and recalled similar times in our house. Dad enjoyed reading it because it rhymed.
