All The Ways Mommy Loves Me is about a mother’s love for her little boy, Anthony. Author Jeanette Bonfiglio writes that Anthony knows his mother’s love not only because she tells him every day but because of the many ways she shows it. Bonfiglio writes about many common, everyday situations such as baking cookies, playing video games, and going out for ice cream. There’s even a page about mommy going on “monster patrol” at bedtime to help ease Anthony’s fears. Nataly Simmons illustrates the book, and one page of the artwork shows a man, apparently Anthony’s father, and a seemingly younger girl, apparently Anthony’s sister. But mostly, the book is about Anthony and his mother. Bonfiglio says her goal is that “children will understand just how much they are loved.”
All The Ways Mommy Loves Me is utterly charming. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and identified with both the boy and the mother (even though I’m a father.) In the most adorable ways, author Jeanette Bonfiglio shows her readers that there’s nothing like a parent’s love. Bonfiglio says the book is about “everyday moments,” and that is important. There are no trips to the amusement park or family vacations (although those are fine). Instead, Bonfiglio meets her goal of children understanding how much they are loved by interaction with their mother in everyday situations. I’m not sure what ages the book is written for - Anthony appears to be about six or so in the artwork - but children of any age would love having this book read to them or picking it up themselves when they're ready. I know my children would. Nataly Simmons’ illustrations are wonderfully done and add much to the attraction and delight of this book. I hope Bonfiglio will write a companion book All the Ways Daddy Loves Me and Simmons will again illustrate it.
