About This Item
"I read this to my son last night and we both loved it! Thank you so much for writing such an honest and much needed children's book. He actually said, 'I love that you go to work and then come home and play cards with me. I know you work hard for us and I love you.' (Insert immediate ugly cry). Well done Christine Michel Carter" -Jenn Luzio, working mom
Finally... A Children's Book For Working Moms.
Can Mommy Go To Work? is the first children's book from writer Christine Michel Carter. A marketing professional and mother to two children, Carter wanted to write a book for other mothers who struggled with work life balance and felt guilty for wanting to further their career. The book features elephants not only because they're intelligent animals known for caring for their young, but also so families from all races can relate to the story.
Can Mommy Go To Work? is called a children's book for working moms because Mommy is the main character, not her children. Through the book child readers will see "the other side of the story"- why their moms work so hard and the sacrifices their moms must make. Parents reading the book will feel understood, loved, and appreciated, and will most likely see themselves and their career path in Mommy. Even grandparents will appreciate the nod in Can Mommy Go To Work? to elder family members who help working parents with child care.
As the author of Big Hair, Don't Care Crystal Swain-Bates says, there is power in reading about someone like you, and many moms wish they had books and experiences that matched their lives when they were growing up. Can Mommy Go To Work? gives the children of working mothers that book and that experience. It is a quick, easy to read children's book that the whole family can enjoy in the car on the way to school or at night before bedtime.
