A celebration of mums written by Simon Philip with joyful and traditional illustrations by Dawn Lo.

Mums are SPECIAL. Mums are UNIQUE.  They can play let's pretend . . . and be your best friend.  They can be pilots of planes. Or drivers of trains.  All mums are DIFFERENT, MAGIC . . . and MAGNIFICENT!

Mums Are Magnificent champions the diverse nature of mums and uplifts and celebrates ALL types of mums everywhere - the perfect present to mark the arrival of a new baby or to give to that very special mum on Mother's Day. Just like I Love My Mummy by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd, With My Mummy by James Brown and Cally Johnson-Isaacs, and My Mum by Anthony Browne, Mums Are Magnificent is a tender exploration of the love between mother and child.



I loved reading this book. I am a mum to a six-year-old and one-year-old. I. Hope they can see me in some of the Mums described. I could certainly see my own Mum. I love the way so many types of mums are celebrated throughout the pages. A lovely family book to treasure.

This is a perfect present for a new Mum or a Mum on Mother's day. All children will love reading this again and again. Children will be shouting out; 'that mum is like my mum, she is a bit like this as well; no - that mum is my mum...' This book shows that woman can be anything and still be a mum. Mums are magnificent and can do everything we want to do and still be a fabulous mum.
