Jonathan Chester and Patrick Regan's My Unflappable Mum is a loving tribute to "the most rare of birds-the incredible, unflappable mum." You know the type. Band-Aids. Car pools. Freshly baked cookies. The 5th grade scale model of Mt. Vesuvius she helped sculpt out of papier-mache-complete with pyrotechnics. Chester's striking and intimate nature photographs of tuxedoed penguins and their young beautifully illustrate Regan's charming verse that honors those incredible, unflappable mums who nurture and instill a spirit of adventure and independence in their young. While it's a mum's job to be ever watchful, fiercely protective, and deeply engaged in her children's lives, it's also a mum's job to let go-to send her young into the big scary world-whether that means walking away without looking back on the first day of kindergarten or nudging them gently out of the nest as young adults. In My Unflappable Mum , Chester and Regan celebrate the relationship between mother and child while praising mum for being the rare bird that she is-and that's definitely something to flap about.
