remember at the start of this pandemic when liz climo so generously created a free coloring book to keep us all outta trouble during lockdown and it was freaking adorable? in my dinky little review of it i vowed to give back by buying her new mother’s day book and here we are—this arrived yesterday and today is mother’s day and i am still in lockdown and that’s okay.



i’ve read all of liz climo’s cartoon collections, and a couple of her picture books. i thought this one was going to be a collectio

Bought this as I was marking another Mother's Day since the passing of my Mom in 2015. The author was inspired to write it in honor of her own Mother who passed when she was in her twenties too. It's a lovely homage to motherhood and addresses the loss of a mother too in lovely illustrations. A sweet book that I intend to revisit on the days when I am really missing my Mom extra. Also makes for a great gift for a new mother in your life.

One of those gift book sort of things that starts out cute enough but feels like the world's longest Hallmark card by the end.

I love this book. Got it as a mother's day/baby shower gift, and it is so cute and so desperately warm hearted without being sickly sweet.

I’m not crying, you’re crying!

In all seriousness though, this was absolutely lovely. A very quick read- I finished it in about 3 minutes, but you certainly want to stay a little while longer amongst the pages and Liz Climo’s wonderful drawings. I loved it!

I love Liz Climo's work so much. This is an incredibly touching collection about moms and how much they love us and we them. It made me laugh and cry. I can't wait for Mother's Day to get here so I can present copies to three very special mothers in my life - my own beautiful mother, my sister, and my niece. Get a copy for the moms in your life. They'll love it!

This was my Mother’s Day gift from my husband, and I thought it was such a perfect book to celebrate the holiday. Liz Climo’s illustrations are simple but beautiful, and this was just a really touching and quick read.

Liz Climo membuat buku tentang Ibu!

Buku ini diawali dengan kalimat pembuka :

"You're mom.
You've had to read a lot of picture books.
(And if you haven't alreasy, you will soon. I promise.)"

Liz membuat ilustrasi berbagai binatang dan anak mereka, mulai dari menetas/lahir, bayi, kanak-kanak, remaja sampai mereka meninggalkan sarang. Banyak tawa, sukacita, amarah, rasa lelah dan haru Liz bukan hanya menegaskan Ibu sebagai seorang sosok yang melahirkan anak, tetapi orang yang mengasuh : kakek nenek, a

Beautiful, hilarious, and heartfelt: Liz Climo is an absolute artist and genius. I'm not a mom (yet), but I ordered this book for my sister who is about to have her second baby and after reading it, I'm ordering a second copy for my mom, who is almost 60. I laughed and cried the whole way through. "You're Mom" is beautifully illustrated with all of Liz Climo's wonderful characters and is incredibly touching. She does an amazing job of leaving no kind of mom out. A wonderful gem for current moms, ...more

LOVED this book. I didn’t love all of Best Bear Ever but I did love all of this book. The illustrations are charming and cute. The jokes are just right. And as an almost new mom I loved the message as it applies to me now. I also enjoyed the intro and how Liz tries to make this book accessible to all people. I highly recommend it.

Very quick but beautiful read that touches on the humorous, difficult and sometimes really emotionally hard parts of motherhood. I loved the great illustrations of animal moms and their offspring. A must for all “moms” at any point.

Not just for Mother's Day or mothers. My favorite illustrations are on pages 5, 12, 33, 65 and 78, but my most favorite is page 49. For some reason it resonated with me.
