Review: What Makes my Mum Happy

What makes mum happy? Other than breakfast in bed and best behaviour, of course? Well, it depends who you are.

If you are a little girl with coffee-coloured skin and curly hair, baking morning tea from a secret recipe is what makes her happy.

If you are a little boy with blonde hair and a stripy top, it's when you run quickly to her after school, because you know she's missed you.

If you are a little girl with bobbed brown hair and ice skates, it's when you give her a cuddle (if she's slipped in an icy puddle).

It all depends on who you are - but you can bet your bottom dollar that it doesn't matter who you are when it comes to an I-Love-You kiss! All mums love those.

This sweet book for younger kids takes the reader through a series of heart-warming scenarios featuring kids and their mum. The sweetest of illustrations are peppered with photographs of real life objects like buttons and flowers, giving texture and variety to the pages.

A lovely Mother's Day gift for mums everywhere.
