Story Time: Elise Peterson presents How Mamas Love Their Babies
Illustrator Elise Peterson presents How Mamas Love Their Babies, the new picture book from Feminist Press (publisher of the Feminist Folktales from Around the World series and more). Illustrating the myriad ways that mothers provide for their children – piloting airplanes, washing floors, or dancing at a strip club – this book is the first to depict a sex-worker parent. It provides an expanded notion of working mothers and challenges the idea that only some jobs result in good parenting. We're reminded that, while every mama's work looks different, every mama works to make their baby's world better. Join Elise – with the babies you love – for an interactive story time! Ages 3 to 8.
