Review - Eat Your Peas For Mothers - Cheryl Karpen

Eat Your Peas for Mothers

I hate to be a downer on a book to honor our wonderful mothers (of which I of course have THE best!) but I believe this book could have included a bit more original content. It has pretty illustrations that convey beauty and love for all mothers, and it even inspires one to be appreciative of the hard work it is to be a mother, but I felt like the short sayings and general message in this book has been written before. Greeting cards, certain "soup" books, and this book all seem to say the same thing, and I would have liked to see a bit more originality in this particular book since the meaning behind the "Eat Your Peas" series was an original idea created by the author to remind someone that they are loved no matter how far away they may be.

Have you ever seen these type of books being original?
I haven't yet. As you said they're cute and pretty but rarely original.
