    3. Fantastic!!! This book proves that it is not always the mother that is home with the kids and does the household chores!

    4. This book showcases a father taking care of the children while the mother comes home from work. Lotsa interesting words like "hastening". Good rhymes.

    6. I was fortunate to have a stay at home mom for most of my life but I had to work when I was raising my kids. This books outlines the important things that only moms can do.
