A Day with Mom
By Pearl and Sydney Bassard
A story that celebrates the little moments in life.
A Day with Mom is about Julia, a precocious 7-year-old girl, who loves spending time with her mom. During their day together, they fix breakfast, go to a book fair, and shop at the mall. Along the way, they experience a few surprises that neither of them was expecting. Join Julia and her mom on a typical Saturday around town.
A Day with Mom hopes to showcase the beauty of spending quality time and making memories. When shopping for diverse children's books, Sydney struggled to find one that showed everyday life. The events in the story are loosely based on the experience and memories that the authors have created over the years. Pearl and Sydney have had many adventures together so it was only natural for them to write this story together. With life being so busy, we wanted to showcase how enjoying the simplicity of daily living can create opportunities to bond as a family. This book is intended for ages 3 and up.
Praise for A Day with Mom
“Sydney and Pearl beautifully capture the shared experiences of the everyday Black family, including the nostalgia of getting your hair done by your mother on a Saturday morning, and the simple joys of going to a book fair and going shopping. Julia is so many of us."
