A touching tribute to moms everywhere

My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love StoryMost children hold their moms up to a high standard and think they can do EVERYTHING!

That's the premise of Jamie Lee Curtis' ninth children's book, My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story. The duo who brought us Big Words for Little People and It's Hard to Be Five: Learning How to Work My Control Panel, continue the streak in this rhyming tale that lives up to the hype.

My mommy hung the moon.
She tied it with string.
My mommy's good at everything.

A little boy recounts all of the fun and amazing things his mom can do. She lit up the sun, she pours down the rain, she feathered the birds and so much more. The fun rhyming stanzas make this an irresistible bedtime story, one any mom will love reading while snuggling up with her little ones. And the illustrations by Laura Cornell have so much going on, you can spend an entire night alone examining each one.
