Mommy Time is a sweet tribute to stay at home mothers and all the ways they enrich their children’s lives – through playtime and playgroups, but also in the everyday routines. These actions, like getting ready in the morning or going to the grocery store, may seem ordinary, but in the children’s eyes they are special because they are all done with love. No matter what they are doing, the children love Mommy time, and all the ways big and small that Mommy shows her love for them. While it is a universal tale, it is also lovingly tailored to the African American family it features, through small details like the hair bonnets the daughter and mother wear at night.

Well Done, Mommy Penguin is a fun take on moms who go above and beyond for their children. A young penguin and his father watch as his mother joins the other mommy penguin to bring home dinner for their families. The young penguin watches with pride as his mother overcomes various challenges, including leaping from the sea and climbing up a cliff. But he becomes alarmed when his mother accidentally awakens the sleeping seals she is trying to tiptoe past. Thankfully, there is a happy ending, which just goes to show that nothing can stop a determined mother! (Or his child who decides he wants a second helping of food). An action packed story that shows off the author’s unique illustrations.
