Book #147: Everything is Mama

Related image

I actually didn’t read this book. I just listened to Jimmy Fallon read it, so it counts for something, right? Right?? Anyway, I was on YouTube minding my business when I came across a recommended video of Fallon – ofΒ The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonΒ – hosting an interactive story time for kids. He read from his bookΒ Everything Is Mama, the follow-up to Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada. I don’t watch his show, but his voice is Blue’s Clues material so I decided to give him a listen and before you know it, I was smiling as I took a trip down childhood memory lane.

When I was a child, everything for me was ‘Mama!’ And still is at many times. πŸ’™

In this book, animal mamas try to teach their children names of certain objects, but each animal baby responds with “Mama” except for the duckling (Why little duckie? WHY?). The book does not have a lot of words – or context for that matter – as it’s aimed for children now learning to read. I love that at the beginning of the book, it says “Everything is Mama, according to you, but there are other fun words you’ll want to know too.” But I love the message at the end even more: “Everything is Mama, according to you. But one day you’ll see Mama’s everything is YOU.” πŸ’™

The animals are adorable so well done to the illustrator.

    1. Yes, he has such a lovely voice! I may have another book of his in my TBR. I think it’s called ‘Thank You Notes’. Not too sure if I’ll ever get to it, though. This one was a pleasant find. πŸ˜„
