"Mom" was the biggest word in her world.
It made her want to dance, and it made her want to hide.
And on some nights, when the house was dark and still and the moon peeked through the window, it made her wonder.
For every mom who has ever wondered if all the little things she does in a day make a difference, Once There Was a Mom offers hope and encouragement. Take it from someone who, like you, has read story after story, sung lullaby after lullaby, and even taken the batteries out of the toys once in a while! The truth is, little things are much more important than we may think. With contemporary, stylized illustration by artist Destin Cox, this charming gift book will bring a smile to the face of mothers of any age.

I just picked up five copies of this book (and am going to have to go get more). It is a gem. I knew I would love it from what a friend had told me about it, but I did not know how magical and powerful it would be until today when I read it for the first time. It is cleaver and funny and HONEST, but also full of profound wisdom--especially the last page. That is what took the book (and me) to another level. That is the message I want to give all the moms in my life. That is the vision I want my daughters and daughters-in-law to keep in mind. It will get them through all the day-to-day bits and pieces. This is a great book. I loved it.
