PreSchool-Grade 2--Each child in Mrs. Madoff's class explains how he or she will celebrate Mother's Day. Rockwell introduces a variety of youngsters, representing many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Young readers will be intrigued by the multiple ways these characters plan their festivities, which include appreciating nature, enjoying family togetherness, eating special foods, and going to a museum. The simple text and vibrant illustrations work well together, as single- and double-page paintings provide glimpses of the activities described by each student. The warm hues and smiles all around show the affection shared by these families. As a bonus, step-by-step directions for making flowers with construction paper, pipe cleaners, and buttons are included. This Mother's Day delight is sure to be in high demand.--Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA
