School Library Journal - 04/01/2015 PreS-Gr 2—A tribute to all of the things a mom can do. The unnamed girl imagines that her mother has attended "Mom School," where she learned how to do a multitude of tasks around the house, how to play, and of course the uncanny ability to do several things at once. There is humor in the idea that these skills were acquired in an institutional setting, and Burris's funny illustrations rendered in soft pastel hues capture this silly but charming concept. The story is appropriately child-centric, though at the end Van Slyke cleverly works in the fact that the mom is not just a superstar at home but also has a career. Predictably, she declares that her best job is being a mom. VERDICT An appealing addition to read at Mother's Day and throughout the year.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
