My Review:

When Mom Feels Great, Then We Do Too! is a heartwarming and uplifting rhyming picture book about family, love and caregiving. When Mom falls ill and needs to rest in bed, the whole family works as a team to help her feel better, from being quiet to cooking her favorite dish, from giving her a tickly foot massage to baking her a tasty treat, and from making the bed to weeding the yard. There are so many ways to cheer up Mom, whose smiles and hugs make everyone feel great!

What the book impresses me most is that it's brimming with positive energy. There is only a brief mention of Mom's illness, with its severity being greatly understated. That's probably what the kids (the narrators) are being told. The sole focus of the story is all the kind and fun things that the kids, along with their Dad and Granny, do to take good care of Mom and to bring her joy and comfort. We see happy faces and feel love throughout the book. The soft hues used in the illustrations create a cozy atmosphere around the family and draw the readers closer to the characters.

While it is written from the children's perspective, the book reads more like a heartfelt thank-you letter from their mom. It manifests the significance of love, care and support from family members. It also inspires us to get creative and not to give up easily when faced with life's toughest challenges. A truly delightful read everyone can enjoy!

About the Book:

When Mom, one day, came home and said, “I think I better get in bed”
It was up to us to get together
As a team so she’d feel better
We came up with all sorts of things to do
Because “when mom feels great then we do too!”

About the Author:

Phyllis Schwartz is a married mother of two, who, after a highly successful career in the TV news business, finally has the luxury to indulge in and focus on her “civilian” writing. Even as a kid, she kept a diary and wrote little stories and poems, a creative release that continued well into adulthood. She wrote news by day and poetry by night. And despite battling three different types of cancer over more than three decades, she is still filled with energy, joy, and optimism, and she looks forward to writing more poetry and children’s books.

Her writing centers on the beauty she finds daily: Her friends, husband, and two children, as well as her garden and her beautiful beach town residence in dreamy Encinitas, provide continued inspiration for her verse.
