We're Making Breakfast for Mother

We're Making Breakfast for Mother

by Shirley Neitzel Illustrated by Nancy Winslow Parker

It's Mother's Day, and two children are preparing a breakfast feast for their unsuspecting mother, to be served in bed, of course. Nothing comes out quite as intended, so it's Mother to the rescue in this extraordinary rebus book.

Praise for We're Making Breakfast for Mother

"The rhymes and rebuses in Neitzel and Parker's books give them child appeal and make them good tools to teach and reinforce reading. They are also very effective models for creative-writing instruction... A great selection, particularly for Mother's Day!" — School Library Journal

"Whatever happens in the sometimes comical artwork, its clarity ensures that every rebus picture is readable, every action is understandable, and every disaster of the morning will eventually turn out all right." — Booklist
