Review of 'Mother's Mother's Day'

Book Blurb:

It's Mother's Day - a time for visits and gifts. A charming family of mice are planning to see their mothers. Hazel and her mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother all go to see their mothers on this special day. But where did Great-great-great-grandmother go?

**My thoughts**

This book is cute. I adore the illustrations of the little mice women. They're old-school charming, reminding me of the classics from when I was a kid. The story is cute, how all of the women are off to visit their respective mothers on this special day, and sad that they aren't around. I will say that I think the generational spread went just a little too far back. No child is going to understand the concept of seeing a great-great-great grandmother. Many don't even get to know a great grandmother anymore.

The cat is a little scary at first and catches you off-guard. I can see some kids gasp in fear that the great-great-great grandmother has been eaten and then be on edge until all of the mice safely reappear at Hazel's house. 

It's a great addition to a Mother's Day library.

I received a set of galleys from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
