Reviews - What do customers think about When Mama Comes Home Tonight?

A sweet book for both mama and child  Mar 28, 2008
My daughter and I have been reading this book together since she was one year old. I found it quite realistic as many of the things depicted in the book are things my daughter and I share daily- sipping tea, playing in the tubby with the ducky, watching cars out the window and hugging. Whatever the reason, she enjoyed it too. I felt it perhaps reassured her that I, Mama, would always be come from work. I think this is a good gift book for other working Mothers.
Fantastic For Working Moms  Apr 15, 2007
This is a must have for the libraries of children with working parents. This was a gift from my Mom, when I was pregnant with my first child. I love this book and so does he! The book is gender neutral, a big plus, and it conveys the message that Mama will be home suberbly. I started reading it to my son when he was 3 months old, he is 2 1/2 and it is one of his favorites.
Sweet--  Aug 20, 2006
This is a sweet book, not too relevant in some places so I change the words, but it still works.
Charming and Sentimental  Feb 7, 2006
As a working mom, this was a book I couldn't resist. Of course, I don't bear much of a resemblance to the mama in this story, but I think my toddlers (both boys) get the picture. The comforting notion seems to resonate with them that after a long day, mama will come home to the sweet bedtime routine.
A must-have for working moms!  Dec 19, 2005
This is a wonderful book that my daughter and I enjoy sharing. She calls it "The Mama Book" and I really think that it helped us both when I decided to go back to work. This book has inspired us to count the cars, wish on stars and share sips of pretend tea.
