Item description for What Moms Can't Do by Douglas Wood & Doug Cushman...

There are many things Moms can't do including keeping toads in their pockets and salamanders in their shirts, but they can lavish you with love like no other, in a delightful tale from a child's perspective accompanied by charming illustrations.

Publishers Description
There are lots of things that regular people can do, but moms can't.
Moms can't wait to wake kids up in the morning.
When they watch movies, they need protection from the scary parts, and they can't sit very long without someone on their lap.
Moms also can't let go of a hug without a kiss. Or two. Or nine.
No wonder they need someone to look after them, I mean, after all, they're just moms

Reviews - What do customers think about What Moms Can't Do?

Creative and Funny Book Series  Dec 17, 2007
I love these What ?? Can't Do books and so does my 18 month old. He actually brings them to me to read to him.

The illustrations are great and the words are so true and endearing. I have almost all the books in the series.
Warm, funny & endearing - a tribute to motherhood  Jul 30, 2007
Apparently, last reviewer, you missed the whole point of the book. OBVIOUSLY, to anyone with half a brain, it is clear that this book is not REALLY about things moms can't do - it's a warm, funny, and insightful look at the habits of caring, wise, and wonderful mothers as seen through the eyes of a young child. Loosen up a little bit - no one is out to get you! And the author & illustrator of this book certainly are not implying that mothers are incapable - quite the opposite. Ever hear of sarcasm? Humor? This book and the Dads version (What Dads Can't Do) are cleverly and tenderly written and illustrated, and are tributes to parents, not the opposite, as you accuse.
Untrue, unnecessary, and unconscionable  Mar 4, 2004
Unfortunate to have received this slanderous volume as a baby gift, I encourage all moms, dads, and others fortunate enough to share their life with children to defy the stupidity depicted therein, and to be a capable, inspiring example.
Bright & Entertaining!  Jun 5, 2003
My toddlers love this book. They adore the bright pictures of the Mommy and child dinosaurs and especially the fun concepts (like racing in a grocery cart).

It is a quick read and often requested at bed time.

I love it as much as my kids do  Sep 10, 2001
From the moment we started reading this book, my kids and I were laughing about all the things moms can't do. It's funny and nicely illustrated, but best of all it puts a cute spin on how we involve our kids in our daily activities. If you like this one, you'll also like OLIVIA, about an energetic pig who wears herself and her mother out.
