My Mother is So Smart! by Tomie dePaola, 2010

This is a very POSITIVE book about a child recognizing many wonderful things about his mom. She knows how to take care of him, makes things, teaches, bakes, decorates, and much more.

"My mother is so smart that she can stand on her head...And she can."

Then it shows a picture of the mom standing on her head. I just love books where the children in the story have complete admiration for their parents and think they know every thing and can do anything. It usually only lasts for a short while, but if we encourage kids to think about all their parents can do, maybe that admiration would last a little bit longer.
