Genre: Children’s Picture Book
“This is a wonderful children's bedtime & dreaming story about a one-of-a-kind relationship of mommy whale with her little beluga daughter.”
“Children, art, and her little family.
Nanna Elliana’s vision was to create books with positive messages for children. Simple stories with a valuable lesson or just a joke that could bring a smile to a child. A unique style with a lot of creativity that can bring any tale of imagination and adventure to new heights.”
Designed as a bedtime story and an excellent length for that purpose, Because I’m Your Mommy is a fun story for young kids (think in terms of two up to six-ish) although I could see a sibling a few years older enjoying it with a younger sibling, either with the parent reading or possibly reading it to the younger sibling.
The message is clear without being overbearing. I remember as a kid when my constant questions of “why?” to my parents got to be too much that often the answer I got back was “because I’m your mother.” This story has nothing to do with that. Instead it has a message of love. An explanation for why your mother does what she does for you. I’m sure the feeling of love will come through for the kids hearing it. (And if you’re a dad or grandparent and think the Mothers are getting all the good press, change the words up and it will work just as well if you make it “Because I’m Your Daddy.” Or not. It’s up to you and works either way.)
No significant issues.
