We love reading together at our house. You can always find books laying around in any room of the house, the newest book you can find in our home? Mother Bruce, by Ryan T. Higgins. I received Mother Bruce for review, however all opinions stated are my very own.
When I first received Mother Bruce, I had no idea what the book was about. The cover of the hardback children’s book was very interesting but I have to admit I didn’t notice the little ducklings in my initial look. Big A grabbed the book one morning before school and began to read it. I noticed while he was reading he was giggling and he would read some of the text a loud and laugh some more. I love seeing him read and seeing the joy and the page turning made me very happy.
After he finished the book, he says to me, “Momma this book was very funny and cute. I didn’t think it would going to be this way.” I don’t want to give anything about the book away, but to leave you excited about the book. I have to admit I didn’t see it going that way either. Interesting right?! We loved Mother Bruce and are sure you and you’re children will enjoy it as well! If you are doing a book Advent calendar this would be a great addition!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Bruce the bear likes to keep to himself. That, and eat eggs. But when his hard-boiled goose eggs turn out to be real, live goslings, he starts to lose his appetite. And even worse, the goslings are convinced he’s their mother. Bruce tries to get the geese to go south, but he can’t seem to rid himself of his new companions. What’s a bear to do?
