This warm and witty celebration of mums is the perfect gift to share on Mother’s Day.
How to Spot a Mum is a tongue-in-cheek tribute and ode to all mums, everywhere. Young readers and parents alike can learn all about mums, from what they are (super-humans!), to some of the special skills they have, including detecting fibs, solving mysteries and conflict resolution.
This beautifully illustrated book is the perfect ‘Spotter’s Guide’ to mums. You’ll discover that all mums are unique, and you’ll meet many different types of mum – from the Outdoorsy Mum who loves fresh air and the Chatty Mum who’s always got a story, to the Rebel Mum who never reads the instructions. You may spot yourself, or your own mum on the pages, too!

This will be a lovely Mother’s Day gift. I especially loved the non traditional mum’s in this book, it’s not all cooking and housework like some children’s books would suggest and this book has a very relevant look at Mums and their differences and amazing abilities.. This is all done while still being sweet, funny and age appropriate. The illustrations are beautiful too and really make the book special.
This Was a lot of fun and a super quick read. As I was reading it I kept showing my own mother parts which made it more special
What a gorgeous little book! I loved the information about mums around the world and how cultures differ. The illustrations were brilliant and so inclusive. My favourite part was ‘tips for children of chatty mums: tell her you’ve organised a sponsored silence’ haha! A quick read which is sharp, witty, warm and loving all at once. I think readers of all ages will enjoy this one.
This book was a truly wonderful read!. The character's were brilliant, and not at all the typical mums that are so often portrayed - instead the Mum's in this book were relatable and realistic. Each of them had their own strengths and weaknesses, which made them even more endearing and realistic to me. Full of humour alongside some truly heart warming moments, I am sure this is a book that all mums out there would love, and also be able to relate to!.
