Mom Says I Can by Judy Cooley. Published by Deseret Book.

This children's book by Judy Cooley takes us into the imaginative world of Max, who spends his days pretending to be a pirate, cowboy, astronaut, knight, and all sorts of characters. On each page, Max is searching for the greatest treasure ever. With each character, mom gives him encouraging praise like, "You are amazing" and "You are my hero". At the end, Max discovers what his great treasure really is.....his mom. I loved this story because I have a little boy like Max, so I can really relate to his mother.

If you have a boy or girl like Max too, I'm sure they would love to have this book read to them. I would especially recommend this book for those dads or kids that are looking for a sweet gift for Mother's Day.
