Comments on: Book of the Week: Mama, Is It Summer Yet? http://www.designmom.com/2010/06/book-of-the-week-mama-is-it-summer-yet/ The Intersection of Design & Motherhood Tue, 13 May 2014 03:28:57 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 By: Amy Jo http://www.designmom.com/2010/06/book-of-the-week-mama-is-it-summer-yet/comment-page-1/#comment-43604 Amy Jo Tue, 06 Jul 2010 04:50:35 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=5301#comment-43604 My son asks to read this book at least a half dozen times a day. He knows the story by heart and loves to “read” it to me. I think a big part of the appeal is that he relates to the story so well. Ours is a library copy but I am so very tempted to buy a copy.

They make me happy :)

I often buy her “First 100 Days” for my friends with new babies. It’s lovely. I haven’t seen this one so I appreciate the reference. Thanks! xoxo

It’s beautiful and poetic and solidifying that much awesomeness comes from Portland, OR.

Kids definitely enjoy “echoing” the line “Mama, is it summer yet?” Charming.

I didn’t have time to go pick it up – I was on a mission – and I haven’t seen her first book. But now I will surely check on both of them. And thanks to Hilary, your first comment . . . I KNEW it reminded me of something I liked. And it was Blueberries for Sal!

my 5yo is currently pining for our annual summer trip to ‘the alders’, where we head to a rustic beach resort to play on the beach for a week straight! 4 weeks to wait seems like forever when you’re five ;)

Mind-boggling to me, given the beautiful level of detail!

My daughter (now 24) has always called me this. Never, mom or mommy or mother, always momma. Special place in my heart, the books looks lovely.

Also, i love how i could actually colour the images with baby Z since they are like drawings!

I feel like such a fraud!:)
