“Very effectively uses the idea of role reversal in GET READY, MAMA! with a child taking on a parental role. As well as making for a very fun book, this approach strikes me as a great way to encourage children to put themselves in others’ shoes and consider different perspectives.”  Cam McIntosh ― Book Chat

A fun role reversal of the chaos of getting ready for the school day. Even as they drive to school the girl in the story is organised with a pack for her Mama to be ready …toothbrush, makeup and brush. The twist at the end of the book is very amusing. A great book to share.
