working mom book

Watch for our review coming soon! A book focused on a working mom and her child, ADVENTURE ANNIE GOES TO WORK by Toni Buzzeo published by Penguin Group USA.

THE BOOK focuses on a Saturday when Mom has to cancel a play day with her young daughter, Annie and take her into the office instead. Adventure Annie with her superhero cape and intrepid spirit turns Mom's lost report into adaring escapade.

THE ACTIVITY GUIDE (a free download) tells young readers that "sometimes you have to help your Mom out" and provides all sorts of activities to do while waiting in Mom's office.

REVIEWS: This entertaining book provides a good opportunity to talk with younger children about the challenges, and rewards, that women in the workforce experience when they combine their paid jobs with raising children."--Yana Rodgers, Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children

"The bright, full-color pencil and watercolor pictures are set against ample white space and show the warm relationship between mother and daughter. This is an office adventure that children will want to experience and a heroine they'll love meeting." --School Library Journal
