Hey Mum, I love You written by Corinne Fenton
Published by Black Dog Books
Hey Mum, I Love You, is a sweet and visually beautiful book with a simple and universal message. The narrator explores all the ways that he/she loves his mum, accompanied by some stunning photos of a variety of animals in cheeky poses. A child can easily put themselves in the narrator’s shoes, to help them express love for their mum.
My favourite part of the book is the conclusion. The narrator says, “Because I know with you by my side, I can do anything.” I love that simple but empowering message. I read this with my almost three year old and she went about the house saying “I can do anything with you by my side.” I think that is about the best take home any book could offer.
I would recommend this as a quiet read aloud, for ages 3-6, and with Mother’s day approaching, it would make a lovely gift to any and all the hard working mum’s across the universe.
