MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT


A truly adorable book about moms, working, and bacon that is just the perfect explanation for why moms have to work.  I wish I had a book like this to read to my son when he was little.  I always worked outside the home while he was growing up and Monday mornings were a struggle at times.  This book takes on those issues with humor and when the mother explains to her son that she needs to work to "bring home the bacon", her son wonders why since they really don't eat that much bacon.  This is a wonderful story that explains just what "bringing home the bacon" means.  Bonus Points:  Rosie the Dog  gets quite a few mentions and I bet she gets all the bacon she can eat!
