The latest installment in this best-selling "How to" series offers fun-filled advice on how progeny should raise their mothers. Presented as a lecture, the book opens with a boy and girl pointing to a large drawing of "Mom," with arrows drawn to features like "strong arms," "fast legs," and "big smile." The audience of their cat, dog, and readers is given tips on how to keep Mom happy and healthy, and then follows the narrators through a day of waking Mom; dressing her (one sandal, one boot, a scarf, and a tiara); running errands (If Mom gets cranky in line, give her snacks); and so on. Of course, a sweetness underscores this humorous role reversal, as the kids demonstrate good behaviors they've learned and finagle a few perks for themselves. They encourage Mom "playdates" in order to score some playground time, and voluntarily institute quiet time, so Mom can do her work. Colorful digital illustrations brim with silly details and enhance the story. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
