When Mom Feels Great, Then We Do Too!

By Phyllis Schwartz

Illustrated by Siski Kalla

38 Pages

Ages 4+

Acorn Publishing

ISBN-13: 9798885280143

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!”

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Wow, just wow! Phyllis has truly created a magical picture book. In this story the mom is sick, with the implied cancer. Cancer isn’t said right out, but “took away the bumps” and the forward lead you to the conclusion. For children anytime their parents are sick, it’s scary and hard on them as well. So to come together and try to make mom better by any means necessary is just beautiful. It will not only help them cope with a serious illness of a family member, but also give the mom joy in a stressful situation. The story is told in verse so it has no problem keeping even the youngest readers interested. My hat is off to Phyllis, and her family. I pray for her continued remission.

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.
