Reviewed by Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite

This unique, appealing children’s book describes how important mothers are to all children – from mummy children to vampire, sea creature, and werewolf children. There are times when every child needs a comforting word or kiss, or a hug when frightened. While fathers are also acknowledged, the book’s focus is on the special relationship with everyone’s mommy. Author D. K. Brantley has written delightful rhyming verse in Every Mummy Has a Mommy. This modern-day version also includes a free mp3 where the author sings the words in the book. What fun this will be for children to hear!

The story’s illustrations by Rodrigo Paulo are beautifully drawn and will further stimulate a child’s imagination. A child can spend long periods of time studying each page, full of detailed and intriguing pictures. Among the mummies and other fanciful creatures, there is a little boy who receives his mother’s kisses every morning. This reiterates the fact that all species, including humans, benefit from a mother’s love. The rhyming verses will also appeal to young children, and parents will enjoy reading this book to them. Parents can use this book to discuss the gifts of family relationships and how people, animals, and other creatures show love to each other. Every Mummy Has a Mommy, crafted by D. K. Brantley, is a story that children will want to hear over and over again – either being read by a parent or listening to the recording. A wonderful addition to a child’s library!
