From Tony Award-winning actress Laura Benanti and Met Opera soprano Kate Mangiameli comes M is for Mama (and also Merlot), a board book -- not for babies, but for their moms! Yes, motherhood is amazing, but let's face it: it's not unicorns and rainbows all the time. Some days you find poo on your leg, and some days you're covered in vomit. Being able to find the humor in all the ups and downs is a mommy-must! This irreverent board book, hilariously illustrated by popular U.K. artist Helene Weston, provides laughter, reassurance, confidence, honesty, and perhaps even a moment of relaxation for expectant, new, and not-so-new moms.
