Mummy Goes To Work tells the story of two children learning why their Mummy works and how it impacts their lives. Told in rhyme, this is a fun and exciting story with a powerful message for children aged 3-6. This charming picture book gives credit to working mothers for all that they do, even the things which can go unnoticed. It’s a relatable story that allows children to realise everything their Mummy does and gives them an appreciation of the love and care they receive!
BOOK EXTRA: Hidden within the illustrations are the boy’s glasses, creating an ongoing activity for children to help keep them engaged and make story time even more fun!
Mummy Goes To Work has been written and illustrated carefully to create a space where children are encouraged to learn and question diversity in families. Suitable for a range of family types including single parents, queer or heterosexual parents, adoptive parents and blended families. Concentrating on the ‘Mummy’ figure, the book lightly touches on diversity through the illustrations, and a lack of clarification on the family structure allows children to think and explore different types of families. By only mentioning one parental figure, this book is relatable to many families, while the focus remains on a working mother supporting her family.
Additionally, the book subtly shows that families can be made up of different races and/or ethnicities, without this being the main narrative of the story. The book never acknowledges who the biological parents are and ‘Mummy’s’ ethnicity is never truly disclosed. In doing this, the story allows children to think and question multiracial diversity in families.
Mummy Goes to Work shows that regardless of family structure, similarities remain in that Mummy works hard to support and love them. As more children read this book and have age-appropriate conversations about diversity, we can teach early literacy, while impacting the world in a positive way.
