Take Your Mama to Work Today

Illustrated by: Alexandra Boiger
For Ages: 4 - 8
Coworkers beware—Violet’s here to “help” at the office in this lively picture book that puts a fun-loving spin on the grown-up work world.

When Violet visits her mom’s office on Take Your Child to Work Day (or snow days, or school holidays, or babysitter-is-sick days), she is very helpful. She answers the phone (once she stops accidentally hanging up on people!), makes business cards (after adding a snazzy personal touch!), learns how to use the paper shredder (and discovers how to make her very own confetti!), and gives the boss pointers on his presentation. With a little mayhem—and a lot of joy—Violet makes her mark on the office!

Whimsical text and effervescent illustrations highlight the indelible spirit of Violet, an adorable character young readers and parents alike will delight in knowing.
