eBook My Mother Is So Smart download

by Tomie dePaola

Mothers are so amazing?is there anything they can?t do? This little boy?s mom is so smart she can make the perfect Halloween costume, drive a truck, dress like a movie star, dance the polka, make popsicles, teach the whole neighborhood to sing and even stand on her head.

Through the heartfelt words of a little boy awed by all the things his mom can do, this glowing celebration of mothers has a universal appeal that will make young readers everywhere want to share it with their own moms.

I just gave this book to my sister who is a new mother to an adopted baby boy. I wanted her to know how much I admire her and what a wonderful mother she will be. As her son grows, he will love to have this book read to him because it will remind him of all the ways his mom makes an ordinary day special.
Excellent!! My students loved it!!
What's not to like?
I adore Tomie DePaola books and this one was extra special and I can't wait to add it to my stocking stuffer list for my girlfriends and cousins for Christmas this year. As always DePaola's pictures draw kids into his books and literally the words just roll off the page and my 3 year old son had me read it 3 times in a row.
A mother held her little boy aloft and smiled at him. Of course he knew even as a baby that his "mother was smart." She knew how to do all kinds of things like changing diapers, she knew exactly when he needed a bottle, and when he got older she could "make the best cookies." Mmmmm! She was handy at making things to eat and drink and even taught all the boys and girls in the neighborhood how to sing songs like "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."

There were exiting times like the Fourth of July when it got dark and she showed all the children how to draw their initials in the darkened sky with sparklers. Tomie's mother was so smart she knew just what to feed a boy on a cold day or how to create that perfect Halloween costume. The feathers and beak on the bird costume were just perfect. The house came alive with her Christmas decorations in December too. Mothers are very smart, but his was extra special smart. There was one thing she could do so well he even bragged about it. Just what could that unusual thing be?

This is a lovely tribute from Tomie DePaola to his mother, a mother who was "so smart" she could do anything. Many little children think their mothers are prettier, more fun, or smarter than anyone else. Tomie was certain that his mother was smarter than all the rest simply by the things she did for him. The artwork is charming, has a nice nostalgic touch to it, and exudes motherly love on every page. One of the most adorable scenes is when he is shown stuffed into a snowsuit strolling "down the sidewalk with [his] brother's galoshes on." This simple story would be a wonderful cuddle up read aloud story for any mother to read to their young child!
Just warning you... The mother does a headstand at the end. Your child may ask you to do one after reading this book!
