With a sweet, universal message and charming illustrations full of irresistibly cute animals, author Su-an Lee and illustrator So-ra Kim’s picture book I Really Like Mom is a loving tribute to moms everywhere.

When I stretch myself awake in the mornings
or drift off to sleep on dark nights,
she’s always by my side.

From playtime to storytime, from tight hugs to mwah mwah mwah kisses, I Really Like Mom celebrates the many reasons why mothers are amazing from a child’s perspective. Whether it’s courage, cuddles, or a hand to lift you up when you fall, mom is always there for you!
