A Kirkus Prize Finalist
A sweet twist on the age-old “yo mama” joke, celebrating fierce moms everywhere with playful lyricism and gorgeous illustrations, Your Mama is an essential Mother’s Day read.
Yo’ mama so sweet, she could be a bakery. She dresses so fine, she could have a clothing line. And, even when you mess up, she’s so forgiving, she lets you keep on living.
Heartwarming and richly imagined, Your Mama twists an old joke into a point of pride that honors the love, hard work, and dedication of mamas everywhere.
"Ramos reconfigures a well-known joke format into an uplifting, rhythmic exultation of motherhood in this bouncy debut....Parents and children alike will appreciate this thoroughly contemporary portrait of familial love."
"A dynamic picture book affirmation of love, adoration and acknowledgement for mothers as both caretakers and individuals....Alcántara's vibrant, tattoo-inspired illustrations boldly complement Ramos's text. The collaboration is an energetic display of admiration for the hard work, love and dedication of mothers."
