Just What Mama Needs by Sharlee Mullins Glenn

When Abby plays dress-up each day of the week, she's always just what her mama needs. After all, a detective will definitely find that missing sock, and a pirate can help Mama swab the decks...er, kitchen floor, that is! But Mama makes no bones about the fact that what she loves most is Abby herself. Household chores are wondrously transformed into magical activities in this imaginative book that showcases the days of the week and celebrates self-esteem.
