What should you get mom this year for Mother’s Day? I mean chances are she has been mom, school teacher, chef and bestie for the last year. Around my house we can add house keeper, gardener and about a gazillion other titles to that list. That being said after a special year this Mother’s Day mom deserves a special gift or at least something she will really want and use.

This interactive gift is the perfect option for kids in the 5-12 age range. The name A Book About Mom: With Words and Pictures By Me pretty much says it all. The pages are full of fun prompts including a mom report card, what the name of your family band would be and pictures of blank matching T-shirts to design. Guess what! There is A Book About Dad version too!
