A little boy tells us proudly how big and wonderful his mother is -- from how soft she is, to how loving she is, to how wonderful it is to sit on her lap on the bus. When his mother goes on a diet, "because of what other people say," he is outraged and becomes a picky eater himself to show her how foolish she is being. There can be no doubt that for this child, his mother is great just the way she is.
This book is a remarkably life-affirming story about a young child who knows that a person should be loved for being just exactly who and what they are.
