March 2022 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month February 2022
Full of the very best intentions and as a payback for the very many days and ways that their Mummy looks after them, two children set about giving their Mummy one very special day to remember for always. They think of all the things that Mummy loves – chocolates, homemade cakes, flowers and some special make up. But somehow, everything goes a little bit wrong! Looking after someone is harder than it looks. Never mind, Mummy gives hugs all round to make all the little problems seem better! It is a reassuring message lovingly conveyed in words and pictures.
