Happy Father's Day, Mom! by Terri Kelley is an endearing story of a single mother rising to the challenge and doing everything that a father does at home. The book speaks about the struggles and joys of being a single parent and how they make the lives of their kids comfortable and happy. The boy in the story is very observant of what his mom does for him and he appreciates it in his own way, saying that his mom should be included in 'Father's Day' as she does everything that a man does effortlessly. The love and admiration the boy feels for his mother is captured beautifully in the story.
The theme is simple, but it states the realities of life and how single parents try to make it work for their children, making it look simple. Terri Kelley's books always have wonderful illustrations that liven up the story. This book also has colorful pictures that show the moments from the life of the boy and his mother beautifully. They also give movement to the scenes and breathe life into the story. It is a beautiful book that can be used as a bedtime story book and also for read-aloud and story-telling sessions in libraries and classrooms.
Every scene in the book shows the boy's admiration and love for the small and routine things his mother does for him. The book also conveys a lovely message that one needs a strong mind to succeed.
