Mornings With Mommy is a children's book for young readers ages 3-7. The main character, Almaz, is a young girl who lives in a world where everything she thought she knew about her daily life has been turned upside down by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The rhyming words will appeal to young readers and the strategically placed "Teachable Moment" prompts support parents in having discussions about language, vocabulary, and shared experiences.
Teachers are encouraged to share Mornings With Mommy as a class read-aloud that discusses the Covid-19 pandemic and encourages quality time with family.
This book depicts an African-American family and a female narrator as the main character, which can encourage school libraries to be more inclusive and culturally responsive.
