Gorgeous Mother’s Day Picture Book: Take a look inside There’s Only One Mum Like You by Jess Racklyeft

Take a look inside

The moment you open There’s Only One Mum Just Like You, you enter picture book heaven. For those of you who melt upon seeing exquisite illustrations, we’d recommend you quickly make your way to the bookshop or library to check out this gorgeous new picture book in which award-winning illustrator, Jess Racklyeft, weaves her water colour magic, and pays tribute to the unique magic of mothers, creating the perfect book to share with little ones on Mother’s Day.

Using vibrant colours and a wide range of animals, Jess shows the warmth and fun that mums the world over bring to their children. From the very first page, where a mother polar bear sits quietly knitting with her baby in front of the open fire, to butterflies hovering over a thriving flower bed talking about the ongoing mother and child relationship, There’s Only One Mum Just Like You is the complete warm and fuzzy experience.

Throughout the book mums read quiet stories, sing loudly in the rain, hug, and most importantly make you feel that you belong. And despite all the jobs that mums have to do, all the little tasks that go on behind the scenes, these mums also manage to find time for fun, cuddles, stretching imaginations and creating wonderful lifetime memories.
