The Wisdom Of Moms & Amazing Dads by: Bridget E. Hamilton | Short Review

About The Wisdom of Moms

• Hardcover: 96 pages
• Publisher: National Geographic (March 28, 2017)

There is so much we can learn about motherhood from the animal kingdom. We can learn how to be the strong role model a child needs, like the snow leopard that teaches her children to survive and thrive on dangerous mountain slopes; to be as resilient as the hardworking sea otter mom; and to serve our communities like the pika, a rabbit-like animal native to northern climates. This is a beautiful tribute to mothers, full of adorable animal photographs and touching anecdotes that show your appreciation for all the wisdom and care that Mom provides.

My Thoughts

I loved reading these books because they were so much fun and soo cute. I was so happy I got the opportunity to read these books because they are just the types of books I look for when it comes to my younger cousins and my friends’ kids. Each book has various animal selections that is accompanied by short antidotes, factoids, memorable quotes and beautiful pictures on every single page. Personally, I think these books would be great for story-time anywhere because the passages are so engaging. These books offer small pieces of information and glimpses into the animal kingdom with such clear, sharp pictures that it’ll make them fall in love with these books and the animals. I really think these books is a great gift to the family to enjoy; from moms and dads with their kids and grandmas and grandpas with their grandchildren. I’ve selected a few of my favorite passages from each book below 🙂

Here’s a quick Book Review installment for a full serialized and narrative driven poetry book, titled: Dear Lover by Lori Jenessa Nelson. 🙂
Dear Lover,Dear Lover, by Lori Jenessa Nelson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lori Nelson elegantly captures snapshots of new beginnings, buttery romance, intimacy, and foreboding endings in “Dear Lover.” In my opinion, unanimous anxiety and panic attacks are sometimes the result of anything related to relationships, love, and connecting. Therefore, I must say that I really enjoyed the vulnerability, and sincerity aspects of Lori’s poetry. Moreover, she offers the reader waves of relief with speckles of spicy and quirky humor a midst the lover’s angst tale. Additionally, I enjoyed the steadily matched shift in the protagonist’s voice in each chapter and stage as she gradually begins to arc. “Dear Lover” sculpts a vivid journey from love to loss and from bargaining to a ventilating catharsis of reflection on lessons learned from past relationships. Overall, I felt this book parallels both the roller-coaster pitfalls of love and life. It has something to offer to everyone and I definitely recommend checking it out.

Thanks for reading,

Gia.
