In the past it has been frustratingly difficult to find kids books that are based around a single-parent family – and still less that are Australian. This excellent little story book ticks both boxes – and more!
The story follows a little girl who gives her birds eye-view of the relationship between herself and her wondrous super-single mum. The result is the telling of a life of riotous fun and love that any two-parent family might envy!
With it’s sweet, simple phraseology, and charming illustrations by Muntsa Vicente of Spain, this book will have you and your kids smiling, giggling, cuddling and most importantly feeling GOOD about the family that they’re in.Best of all, My Super Single Mum starts and finishes with the mantra “it’s just me and my mum, and that’s okay” – and you know what? It REALLY IS!
My Super Single Mum is a collaboration between Melbourne-born writer Bronwen “Bronny” Fallen and illustrator Muntsa Vicente of Spain. A testament to the power of online partnerships, the creative Bronny and Muntsa have never met in real life, yet together they have produced a wonderfully cohesive and engaging little tale that truly celebrates the world of the single-parent family.
My Super Single Mum is priced at $15.00, and is available from Booktopia.
