A contemporary and original gift book, celebrating modern motherhood and mothers.

The Times Children's Book of the Week.

In this eye-catching, neon-bright picture book, a baby sees their mother in every aspect of their day from birth to first steps.

A mother's a house,

She's a car in a rush,

She's a lullaby hush.

As the pages go by, the child grows. The mother becomes a road, a story and a show, the illustrations at times literal, unexpected. On the final page, the child is ready to take their first steps. Because a mother is a home that you carry inside you forever.

Offering a unique baby's eye view of the first year, A Mother Is a House contains all of the funny observations and emotions of a mother and child's first year together-shown through bright, modern illustrations and special inks.

A chic and stylish gift book for expectant parents, baby showers, new mums, Mother's Day, or as a celebratory gift for daughters and grandparents.

Translated from the French by Daniel Hahn.
