it was ok

I did not really like a chair for my mother and was very surprised that this book won an award. The pictures are colorful and an aid to the story however I believe that they look sloppy. Many of the illustrations look like blobs and it is hard to sense deeper emotion from the characters. What I did enjoy were the borders that surrounded each pair of pages. No two borders were the same and it livened up each scene. Both the story and illustrations did not appeal to me. Although it is a simple children's book I found myself mad at the mother for be lazy and lacking interest in spending time with her daughter. I would not recommend this book.
