Following How to Babysit a Grandma and other titles, Reagan and Wildish introduce two brown-haired siblings who offer tips on raising a "happy, healthy mom." The humorous role reversals of the previous books are once again on full display: the children help their mother get dressed in the morning (the "perfect" outfit involves mismatched shoes, socks on hands, and no fewer than six hair bows) and "Surprise her with a snack and toy" when she starts to get cranky in a long grocery store line. Loving and caring work both ways, this duo makes clear. Ages 4 8. Author's agent: Jamie Weiss Chilton, Andrea Brown Literary. Illustrator's agent: Vicki Willden-Lebrecht, Bright Group.
