The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.25 / 7.0
B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
1.5 / 7.0

There are big grammar issues in this book, like “Certain she can figure it out, Dr Atrid get to work” instead of “got to work,” for example. I think the overall story, message, and illustrations are cute, but I have a hard time reading it with the text.
