Doctor Mom Blog Hop @ElaineKayeAuthor


Moms have to be everything, don't they? Chauffeurs, cooks, laundresses, psychologists, even doctors. With seven kids--four of them boys--my mom saw plenty of lacerations, contusions, fractures, probably even a concussion or two. But, she weathered all that, and so did the kids. Mom's been gone for over ten years now. I miss her a lot. This is one of my favorite pictures of her. That's me on her lap.

My friend Chrys Fey's mom, Elaine Kaye, has written a book entitled Doctor Mom. Here's more about it.




Title: Doctor Mom
Author: Elaine Kaye
Genre: Picture Story Book
Ages: 5-8 years


BLURB: It’s Saturday, and Gregory Green can’t wait to have fun with his dad on the riding lawnmower, but something is wrong. Sammy, his teddy bear and best friend, won’t get out of bed. Gregory is worried when he sees Sammy’s left leg is torn. This is a case for Doctor Mom! Can they fix Sammy? And just how did Sammy get hurt in the first place?


PRAISE FOR DOCTOR MOM:

"Doctor Mom is an adorable story that shows how Moms can fix anything—even a torn limb on a beloved teddy bear! Children will enjoy the lovable little bear who needs a stitch or two and his boy who plays dress-up as a doctor." – Wanda Luthman, award-winning author of Little Birdie Grows Up

“A sweet and heartfelt tale kids can easily identify with, and all of that with a wonderful touch of magic.” – Tonja Drecker, reviewer at Bookworm for Kids

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Elaine Kaye first created Gregory Green after her son, who loved her homemade pea soup, thus inspiring the story Pea Soup Disaster. Doctor Mom is the second book in A Gregory Green Adventure series and highlights something all moms and children can relate to; a beloved stuffed animal in need of a repair.

Kaye has worked as a library assistant and teacher's assistant in elementary schools in the Sunshine State. She currently lives in Florida, but she has called Michigan; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Okinawa, Japan home.

She is a grandmother of three boys.


This is a blog hop, so hippity-hop on over to Chrys Fey's website to find the other participants.

  2. Yes, mom's are super heroes. :-) My mother is getting up there in years and she will not be visiting this year. It is always in my mind that the clock is ticking. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and Elaine's book.

  5. Great photo, and good memories. Yes, moms have to have a lot of skills! My mom has always been able to do just about anything, including an awful lot of doctoring, though she always said she was no nurse.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca. My mom was nurse/caregiver to my dad. Sometimes you do what you gotta do.

  6. Your mom was an amazing lady! I totally understand the missing part. I don't know that that will ever go away. Seems some days, the longer it's been, the more I miss her. But we have the memories and all they taught us until we meet up again.

  9. Seven kids would keep a mom busy. Sounds like your mom did a great job. I understand missing her too. Every now and then I think of something I'd like to tell me mom. So I do. Maybe she hears.
    Congratulations to Elaine. Looks like an adorable book.
