We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

Really enjoyed the enjoyed the games A and I could play together at the end! Really brings out the imagination with your child. Illustrations, greatly done and I loved how they captured what was going on in the book.
What bothered me about this book and why I had to give it 3 stars are because of the following.
1. The writing was a bit too small, trying to read it on my kindle I had to have the device really close to my face. Maybe make the words a bit bigger.
2. "Perfect moms have perfect little girls." This bothers me because no one and I mean NO ONE is perfect. I think this could have been worded a bit better. Along with that sentence, the next page says perfect moms sit on the bench and mine goes on the merry-go-round. Us moms bring our children to the playground to play with other kids if us moms want to sit on the bench to watch you play it is not us being perfect.
3. This sentence "You can touch my mom whenever you want and she never breaks".....this part just sounds weird to me. Maybe revise it. 
Overall it was an okay book that A and I did like to read and we both noticed that the little girl not only loves her mom but enjoys spending time with her.
