'Make sure you wear clean undies when you go out. Just in case you get hit by a truck!' Full of stories, quotations and phrases, this beautiful gift book celebrates everything that we cherish about our mothers. It teaches us the value of mums, their individuality, the good, the bad and all that is special about mums. Not only is respect and appreciation an important lesson for the older sons and daughters, it is also an important lesson for new mothers to teach the next generation. The book is a meditation on the experiences of one family, but also reveals universal truths about love, kindness, growing up and loss that are evident in all families. The Baker brothers have transformed quotations, personal stories and memories of their mother into a timeless book where we are encouraged to add our own thoughts, recollections and notes in the blank pages at the back. Readers are prompted to reminisce and share their memories of what it was like to be happy, scared, petulant, loving and loved.
