Publisher: Baker’s Dozen Press
Pub Date: April 30, 2011 (45 Pages. Paperback)
Book Source: Paperbook

Synopsis:
Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to talk with a child about the illness or death of a parent. I Remember Mommy’s Smile offers parents and other caregivers an opportunity to open the door to dialogue. It also shows children that they are not alone or strange; others have gone through this type of sadness and loss, and they have ended up okay. As author Dina Wolfman Baker understands from her own experience, knowing you’re not alone can mean a great deal. These are her memoirs…written from her child self to other children, with the sensitivity, honesty and directness that can only come from having been there.

My Thoughts:
I asked the author to review is book. For I do enjoy Children books even at my age. I will tell you that it a quick read and a great read. I understood the concept of it and it almost had my eyes in tears. I said almost at the end of the book. It is heartfelt. I do really believe this.

The story is a great a wonderful for children and they would understand it quite well. I am glad that the author got though her grief and talked about it or at least talked to her father or her brother. I for the pictures   in the book. This I could see what she was trying to refer to in the pictures though they were not perfect but I did understand the point and the story itself. This as nothing to do with the author writing the book or the illustrator who did the pictures.

My mom had picked up the book before I did. She picked it up sometime before we went on vacation for a weekend. I had received it my mail and opened it. I was currently reading another book at the time. It was sitting on the table in the living. My mom picked it up and read it. She said that it was good. The pictures were not great to her, though I think she understood the book though. This is what she told me when I asked  How was the book. I could recommend it to Children and Parents and though working with Children.

My Thoughts on the Book:
I received this book from the author. I read it and it was every cute and funny. I rhymes every so often. The story tell about how he is named “I’m Squirrely”.

I love how the pictures are funny to look at and the story itself is funny. I was laughing almost every time I read the book. It tell how he acts in school and what he does at home. It show just how he loves moving and Grooving.

I also think it is geared to children that have ADHD. I could be wrong but I think some children with AD-HD is kinda like I’m Squirrely. Though most children are kinda like this growing up a bit.
