Let’s face it moms and dads...sometimes, there are things that kids just do better than their parents, and that’s okay! Some of the proudest moments as a parent happen when we see our children excel.

Am I the only parent who would love to be a fly on the wall, maybe throw on my invisibility cloak and watch my kids during a typical school day?  Are they polite? Do they raise their hands and wait to be called on? Are they respectful of their teachers and friends? Is their desk messy and gross, do they clean up and follow directions? Are they the talker in class?

What's great about The Day My Mom Came To Kindergarten is that it's not the student causing trouble, it's the parent proving yet again that kids are better at certain tasks than their parents.

This is a wonderful book for little ones getting ready to attend a school setting and it doesn’t necessarily have to be kindergarten, preschool children would understand this book as well. It's a great way to enforce the dos and don'ts of school without harping on them and allow them to grow more comfortable with what they'll be doing at school.
