When Mum was Little

I love this nostalgic book and so do my little ones. The concept of kids telling the story of when their mum was little is just really cool. Australian author Mini Goss captures this so vividly and her trippy, Ď70ís inspired illustrations are a great foil for the narrative: remembering a night out at a favorite Chinese restaurant, or the birth of a sibling, a birthday party, grandma- mumís mum- at the beauty parlor, painting the kitchen a new color. I have so much fun reading this to my kids in my greatest effort at an Anglo/Australian accent and they love asking me, once we finish the book, about when I was little. I, inspired, then ask them about when "they were little". We read this before bed, which I have to mention since the night stretches out with all the after talk.

At Amazon.

She needs to update it, my wife and I didn't grow up in the 70s :)
