My Mum Is Beautiful

By Jessica Spanyol

Let me tell you all the ways I love my mum...

My mum is beautiful because she points out tiny things in books to me. In her newest picture book, Jessica Spanyol succeeds in capturing, with great warmth and humour, the wonderful bond between a mother and a child. Told from the perspective of a small bear, this book encapsulates how love is measured in a child's mind: a gesture so simple can mean so very much.

  • A companion title to My Dad Is Beautiful. These two books are the perfect gifts for Father's Day and Mother's Day.
  • With beautiful art, Jessica has created a lively and charming world for her characters, infused with contemporary patterns and humorous details.
  • The book's simplicity and vibrancy will enchant young children and parents alike, no doubt establishing itself as a firm bedtime favourite.
