If you’re a mom who works outside of the home, I’m sure at some point you’ve had to explain to your children why you go to work. Children want their parents around when they are young. They don’t always understand why we can’t always be with them and do everything they want to do. When you work outside of the home, time with your children is so important. In her book Mommy Brings Home the Bacon, Nikki Mark tells what it’s like for her to go to work while her children go to school. She has to “bring home the bacon”.
“Mommy Brings Home the Bacon” is a heartwarming children’s book that explores the ouching relationship between a young boy and his working mom.
Told from the young boy’s perspective, the whimsical narrative reflects a child’s imaginative interpretation of why mommy goes to work, and the beautiful bond that develops as a result.
Bringing simplicity and lightheartedness to an emotional topic, “Mommy Brings Home the Bacon” fosters a child’s appreciation for a working mother, while simultaneously easing the minds of moms who balance the difficult responsibilities of financially supporting their household and raising the children they so dearly love.
This is a really cute story. It’s perfect for young children who don’t really know why Mommy has to work. It explains it in a perfect way for little ones to better understand. I am a stay at home mom, so my son has only know me being home with him. (If you ask him, he’ll tell you my job is “taking care of me”.) He enjoyed this story and learning about how in some families the Mommy & Daddy both work.
The Mommy Brings Home the Bacon book by Nikki Mark is available from Amazon.com. You can also learn a little more about it on the website. And you can connect with her on Facebook and Twitter.
