Richmond demonstrates motherly devotion through a series of episodic examples. When a disorganized boy announces that he needs a frog costume—“with the show one day away!”—his frazzled mom spends all night working on it (“She’s still sewing when I wake up/ To finish what I need”). Another mother drops everything to track down her child’s lost teddy bear (“Mom forgets about our shopping and turns the car around/ We re-visit seven places until lost Bear is found”). From forgotten lunches to sick hamsters and scary thunderstorms, Richmond’s smudgy watercolors offer a catalog of relatable mother-and-child moments. Ages 4–up. (Apr.)
