When she was my mom
she said no sweets before lunch.
This collection of irreverent haiku explores the reality of modern motherhood-complete with dirty diapers, spilled Spaghetti-O’s, obnoxious purple dinosaurs, carseats, strollers, choking hazards, and more.
It’s the perfect gift for new moms with young children at home-a book that can be picked up for a minute and then put down to wipe a nose or settle an argument, all while making Mom laugh.
With more than 100 haiku and 40 whimsical illustrations, Haiku Mama is a collection of verse that all mothers (and their family and friends) will love.
KARI ANNE ROY is the proprietor of haikuoftheday.com, a blog devoted to parenting haiku and commentary on the daily activities of a busy household. She lives in Austin, Texas.
