About The Book

In delightfully droll bullet points and wacky boxed lists, this tribute to mothers everywhere provides a thousand--make that a thousand and three—reasons to acknowledge and appreciate that all-important female parent in our lives. How did these three talented authors find so many truisms about motherhood? Everyone who has a mother will understand completely once they get their hands on 1,003 Great Things About Moms. It's a sweet and sassy look at what makes moms so special.

  • When you're sick in bed, she'll let you watch horrible soap operas and infomercials.
  • She's not offended when you pour ketchup all over the dinner she makes for you.
  • At the peak of your ugly phase, she still thinks you're cute.
