Title- I LOVE MY MOM
Author- Fongsamy Pommaxay
Publisher-Room to Read.
I was attracted by the words, “I LOVE MY MOM” on the cover page.
I read this interesting book. It is a Japanese story translated by Stephanie Wei, illustrated by Nivong Sengsakown.
During this lock down, I could not buy and read any books. Then I thought of searching online books to read. I saw many books. Suddenly my eyes were drawn to this particular story which was “I LOVE MY MOM.”
The story is about a little girl and her mom. Her mom loves her very much, so she teaches many skills to her like, how to cook, wash and dry clothes, water plants, make the bed, how to ride a bicycle.”
She used to tell bedtime stories to her daughter at night and sing her lullabys when she was sleepy. Her mom worked hard all the time. So the little girl loves her mom very much.
The lead character of the story is her mom. The most interesting thing about her was that she was a hard worker all through the day.
The central idea of the story is the girl learns many skills from her mom. They have illustrated the story through pictures.
The general look of the book is impressive because of the colorful pictures. Even kids can easily understand the writing skill of the story.
My favorite part of the book was learning the bicycle ride.
I understood how to learn many skills from my mom in this story.
If I could change something in this book, I will write the whole story as a conversation.
I would rate this book 4 out of 5. The best age group of this book is 7 – 9 years.
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
