This humorous new addition to the beloved and bestselling HOW TO . . . books takes readers through a playful and productive day with Mom. Written in an instructional style, two siblings suggest the best ways to raise a happy, healthy mom–from waking her up in the morning to arranging play dates, to making sure she gets enough exercise, some quiet time, and plenty of veggies Filled with charming role-reversal humor, creative ideas, and lots of love, How to Raise a Mom is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day–or any day


Rationale for Inclusion: I thought that this book would be a cute and unique addition to our collection for both children and parents alike. This book cleverly incorporates humor as it provides children with a window into the various roles and responsibilities associated with being a mother. I also really liked the fact that the story is written in a way that includes various instructions for how to actually go about raising a mom, which I thought was a fantastic way to encourage playful interactions between mothers and their children.
