About The Book

As seen on The TODAY Show!

Moms are amazing! The care, support, and love they give make us stronger, smarter, kinder, and happier. Every mom is unique and special, so celebrate them with this beautiful picture book written by the married team of Sarah Kate Ellis, the president and CEO of GLAAD, and musician Kristen Ellis-Henderson.

"All Moms is such a special and important book for young readers, because more than ever, it's key that we teach our children to have love and compassion for others. This book reminds kids and families that all moms are superheroes, no matter how they look, what they do for work, or where they come from." -Melissa Etheridge, GRAMMY and Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter

"An expansive view of motherhood in this stylish homage. Above all, it's kindness and care that define 'mom.'" -Publishers Weekly

All Moms is a love letter to mommies. Moms make us laugh. Moms read us stories. Moms snuggle us when we're sad, and help us grow. Some moms are silly, some are sporty or crafty, but all moms are incredible. Moms can do anything!

Created in partnership with GLAAD, this inclusive picture book features and celebrates all different types of mommies and the amazing things they do.

Married coauthors Ellis, a GLAAD executive, and Ellis-Henderson, a musician, offer an expansive view of motherhood in this stylish homage. True to its name, the book attempts to celebrate "all moms"-including a pilot, a boss, and a doctor, as well as a single mother, two dads who "give hugs/ just like moms," and one "great nana." One notable scene features a joyous march with participants holding aloft Pride and Transgender Pride flags, as well as signs that read "equality" and "love is love": "Some moms make signs/ and march in parades.// Some moms give kisses/ and make lemonade.// But all moms/ will help you/ and come to/ your aid." Matching the energy of the text's rhyming prose, Rambaldi's hip illustrations busily burst with life, depicting parents and children with varying abilities, gender expressions, skin tones, and body types.... With their inclusive focus, this well-matched trio show that above all, it's kindness and care that define "mom." Ages 4-8.

– Publishers Weekly

Moms come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, but they are all special, as shown in this heartwarming picture book. The book depicts a diverse array of mothers and mother-figures engaging in a variety of activities with their children. The moms are frequently very active, whether they're flying airplanes or making lemonade. They are shown at work in careers, such as being a boss or a doctor, as well as in nurturing roles around the house, making this book a wonderfully well-rounded depiction. There is also plenty of humor, showing that moms can be very silly, and definitely know how to have a lot of fun, too. The illustrations are warm and comforting, showing diverse people, settings, and family structures. The book is also all-inclusive, reminding readers that some families might have two fathers, or a grandparent in the main caretaking role instead. This celebration of motherhood will be beloved by children and guardians alike, and will be a perfect title to curl up with and share together.
