In her debut picture book, Mommy’s Little Wordlings, Linh Nguyen-Ng’s characters walk us through the many things mothers do for their children every day. The Little Wordlings are cheered up by “mommy ways” of providing for both material and emotional needs. They are grateful for the wisdom their mother imparts and talents she passes along. The charming characters wear “love words” on their bodies. These words, along with sweet illustrations, portray a caring home and tender mother-child relationship. Mommy’s Little Wordlings helps kids express love and gratitude and would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift. Mommy’s Little Wordlings from Anaiah Press was released April 7, 2015.
