“This baby’s view of a mother contains funny observations and juxtapositions, and the kind of unexpected truths you find in poetry—A Mother Is a House is truly original”  Julia Marshall, Publisher

About the Author

Aurore Petit is one of a new young generation of French illustrators to emerge from the influential School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg. She lives in Paris.



"This book is really a wonderful celebration of all things involved in being a mother to a young child–both the enjoyable and the more challenging aspects."
*Youth Services Book Review*

"Gorgeously illustrated, refreshingly real and oh so touching, we think this book is just glorious."
*Well Read*

"What’s most striking about the book, though, is its use of intense neon colors both for details and large swaths of the illustrations and for the text itself. The final metaphor says it all: “A mother’s a home.” "
*Kirkus Reviews*

Children's Book of the Week
"Daniel Hahn is a careful, creative translator and his lovely sing-along lines avoid cliché. The tone is never cloying—a feat in a paean to mums for this age group."
*The Times*
