Although the title seems very gender-role specific, this sweet picture book is anything but.
It is actually two stories in one, with the separate tales coming together in the centre double spread, one side of which appears upside down.
When children open What Mommies Do Best, they'll be treated to pictures of a variety of animal moms and their children reading stories, playing ball in the park, making snowmen, and watching the sunset.
If they close the book and turn it upside down, they'll see What Daddies Do Best, the same things Moms do.
As usual, Munsinger's watercolours are bright and funny, and her animal characters are delightful.
The book design may appear unusual at first, but it will appeal to little ones, who will find the whole a soothing, comforting view of the ways parents can and do love their kids, somehow different yet so much the same.
