A tender rhyming story of a mother’s love is what young readers will find in The Bump by Mij Kelly. This story brings children from the day their mother first knew them when they were deep inside her womb, through to the day of birth, and beyond. Mommy suddenly feels funny and she soon notices a bump. Then she runs off to share her news with everyone, loving the bump as it grows. Soon one day, the baby curled inside grew too big, so off Mommy went to the hospital, and just like the child, her love has grown very big.
The Bump is such a sweet story. You might not expect it to be so touching because the rhymes are light-hearted, but this is definitely a celebration of a mother’s love. From the adorable cover to the many cute illustrations inside, artist Nicholas Allan has complemented this wonderful story with beautiful artwork.
A perfect gift for a mom-to-be or a family wishing to share this love with their children.
