Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

"All Moms is such a special and important book for young readers, because more than ever, it's key that we teach our children to have love and compassion for others. This book reminds kids and families that all moms are superheroes, no matter how they look, what they do for work, or where they come from." -Melissa Etheridge, GRAMMY and Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter

Moms are amazing! The care, support, and love they give make us stronger, smarter, kinder, and happier. Every mom is unique and special, so celebrate them with this beautiful picture book written by the married team of Sarah Kate Ellis, the president and CEO of GLAAD, and musician Kristen Ellis-Henderson.

All Moms is a love letter to mommies. Moms make us laugh. Moms read us stories. Moms snuggle us when we're sad, and help us grow. Some moms are silly, some are sporty or crafty, but all moms are incredible. Moms can do anything! Created in partnership with GLAAD, this inclusive picture book features and celebrates all different types of mommies and the amazing things they do.

Toddler-PreS--A much-needed book about moms and families of all kinds, featuring a refreshing array of skin, hair color, and gender revealed in illustrations and text such as, "Janie's two dads give hugs just like moms." Ellis and Ellis-Henderson describe the variety of things moms can be and do, such as fly planes, march in parades, and give kisses, but come back to the comforting reminder that all moms love and support their children. Rambaldi's big, busy illustrations will engage readers with friendly, familiar scenes of everyday life. VERDICT This delightful book about diverse families is recommended for purchase.--Kristy Pasquariello
