B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.25 / 7.0

I’d personally prefer this book in the picture book format. This silly story teaches little ones how to raise their mother, like telling her it’s quiet time when she has work to do, or piling everything mom forgets to take on outings by the door to help her remember. The humor is great and might prompt kids to try out some of these ideas which actually might help mom out (sneaky, sneaky!).

Who Wrote How to Raise a Mom

Jean Reagan

I am a children’s author living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was born in Fairhope, Alabama, but spent most of my childhood in Japan.

My book, HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDPA, (2012, Knopf Books for Young Readers) is a humorous picture book about a little boy and his grandpa. It’s a NYTimes bestseller and an Indie Bestseller.

The companion book, HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDMA, (2014) is a sleepover story about a grandmother and her granddaughter. It’s also a NYTimes and Indie bestseller.

These two books have become the start of a HOW-TO “”series.”” HOW TO SURPRISE A DAD came out in March, 2015 and HOW TO CATCH SANTA came out in October, 2015.

My previous book, ALWAYS MY BROTHER, (2009, Tilbury House Publishers) is a story about a serious topic – sibling loss.

In 2017, HOW TO RAISE A MOM and HOW TO GET YOUR TEACHER READY were published. A “”spooky”” Halloween book, HOW TO SCARE A GHOST, joined the series in 2018. I have one more book under contract, so stay tuned!

In the summer, my husband and I serve as backcountry volunteers in Grand Teton National Park. We live in a patrol cabin that has no running water or electricity. Elk, deer, bears, and an occasional mountain lion are our neighbors.
