Synopsis (taken from the Barnes & Noble website)
Celebrate the joys, triumphs, sorrows, and the wisdom gleaned—all of the ups and downs of the amazing adventure called Motherhood.
Whether you become a mom through adoption, by giving birth, or through marriage, your heart is never completely your own again . . . and that is one of the miracles of being a mom.
Just as no two women are the same, the experience of being a mom is different for each of us. In The Ultimate Mom, you'll follow the journeys of mothers through a diverse collection of stories about this rewarding and challenging job. While some stories are humorous, some are inspirational, and others are poignant, all are filled with the passion, devotion, and dedication every mother feels toward her child.
Words may paint a picture, but photos tell their own story, too. The Ultimate Mom is filled with eye-catching photo of moms and their children celebrating life's events, both big and small. You'll also find expert advice from moms in the trenches about finding 'me' time, dealing with sibling rivalry, parenting a spirited child, achieving a healthy life balance, and many more timely and provocative subjects.
Join in the celebration of mothers with The Ultimate Mom.

The writing is great and definitley easy for anyone to understand. I adored the pictures- what a wonderful addition to the stories! The Ultimate Mom is a very down to earth and enjoyable read.
