Synopsis

From the creators of the New York Times bestselling HOW TO . . . picture books comes a hilarious and heartwarming new story about raising a happy, healthy mom!
 
This humorous new addition to the beloved and bestselling HOW TO . . . books takes readers through a playful and productive day with Mom. Written in an instructional style, two siblings suggest the best ways to raise a happy, healthy mom—from waking her up in the morning to arranging play dates, to making sure she gets enough exercise, some quiet time, and plenty of veggies! Filled with charming role-reversal humor, creative ideas, and lots of love, How to Raise a Mom is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day—or any day!

Still, this may be just the ticket for harried moms who want to point out all they do for their kids and get a little help in return—sly fun in other words.
