** Article first published as Book Review: The Wonders of Mother's Milk by Mishawn Purnell-O'Neal on Blogcritics.
I received an email pitch last month from the author of this book asking whether I am interested in reviewing her book which has recently been made available in digital formats (iBookstore and Kindle). I checked out her book in Amazon website for more info and decided I have to review it, simply because this book is about breastfeeding, the wonders of it!
In case you are new to my blog, I just want to let you know that I am very very passionate about anything related to breastfeeding. As a mother of 2 kids, I am still breastfeeding my 41 months old boy and 11 months old girl. So, yes, anything related to breastfeeding, I am in! So here goes my review for the "The Wonders of Mother's Milk" e-book:

"The Wonders of Mother's Milk is a multicultural children's book that will engage, educate and entertain its readers. With its rhythmic poetic text and colorfully diverse illustrations, early readers will be given the keys to unlock the doors of discovery into the many wonders of mother's milk."
I love this book! The illustrations are easy to the eye, this book is not too long winded nor too short to make a statement!
I love that the paragraphs rhymes and is easy to read while still being able to deliver the points in breastfeeding, how it benefits our little ones, how different mothers breastfeed and nourish their child and how children from different ages can still enjoys the benefits of breastfeeding.
I just love the last page on this book where it says
"So when you see a mother giving her baby her milk,
don’t stare, instead give her a smile. And know that
she’s is giving the best gift that she can give to her
This book deserves more publicity and need to be made aware of its existence!
