My Mama Is a Mechanic 

Cuddle up with Mom for this sweet celebration of a mom as seen through her son’s eyes.

The companion to My Papa is a Princess, this picture book depicts the loving relationship between mother and son. To him, she is a surgeon when she repairs his favorite stuffed animal, a chemist when in the kitchen, and an architect when they play with toy blocks. But no matter what happens, she is always his mama, and that's the most important thing of all! Vibrant illustrations add energy and humor to this simple text that flouts stereotypes and highlights the importance of imaginative play shared between parents and their children.
