Filled with gorgeous artwork that camouflages the moms, the pages are die-cut so that the found mom is a raised piece that kids can touch. When the page is turned, the piece fits into a scooped cutout on the opposite page.

Dear Mom,Keep this book forever to remember all the reasons why I love you.

A sheet of illustrated stickers gives kids even more ways to customize the work!

Each book starts with a letter to parent from child, and then the fun begins, from:

Your favorite animal is ______.

You are terrified of ______!

To: I wrote a story about you. Want to read it together?

To: Look! I drew a picture of us on an intergalactic space adventure!

And finally: This is us, having the greatest adventure ever.

I love you, Mom!
