Mommy Ever After
Mommy Ever After follows a mother and daughter from the time she is a baby up through the daughter being ready to start school. The mother tells the daughter magical stories but always ends them with “and they lived mommy ever after” and “Because we are not always going to feel happy but I am always going to be your mommy.”
The text was beautiful. I loved how the mother used storytelling to teach the daughter about the good and hard things in life. The author has a gift with words. I am just in awe. The illustrator was a perfect choice for this book. She did a great job of blending reality along with the fantasy stories. The purples and blues were just a great palate choice.
I highly recommend this book for moms to read to their young daughters. I think this is a perfect book for a birthday or baby gift for anyone that has a little girl. I hope to read more by this author and illustrator. I hope they will get to work together again on a book because it’s just a stunning piece of art.
