Horn Book Review

As time runs out before Mother's Day, Charity tries to think of the perfect gift. After watching Mom juggle household tasks with calls from the office, Charity has an idea: on Mother's Day, she stops all the clocks in the house (and unplugs the fax and anything that beeps or bleeps or buzzes), giving Mom a day of unscheduled time. The illustrations for this pleasant story reflect the busy lives of Charity and her parents. From HORN BOOK Fall 1999, (c) Copyright 2010.
