Summary
A Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honor Book

Mama's love is brighter than the sun, even on the rainiest of days. This celebration of a mother-daughter relationship is perfect for sharing with little ones!

On a rainy day when the house smells like cinnamon and Papa and Luca are still asleep, when the clouds are wearing shadows and the wind paints the window with beads of water, I want to be everywhere Mama is.

With lyrical prose and a tender touch, the Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honor Book Mama and Me is an ode to the strength of the bond between a mother and a daughter as they spend a rainy day together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lush acrylic hues of color wash every double-page spread while spare text describes the tender feelings a small Black child with curly, high-bunched pigtails has for her beautiful mother. Simple words express the little one's emotions as she eagerly wakes up in the morning to enjoy their daily activities together. Throughout the pages there are comparisons between Mama's and daughter's familiar objects: Mama's cup (big) and mine (little); Mama's toothbrush and mine ("I get less toothpaste"); Mama's boots (tall and red) and mine (short and yellow). Raining? "The perfect day for boots and puddles," says Mama, with joyous depictions of the two singing and splashing in the wet outdoors as silvery drops fall. After a good day, there are pajamas, giggles, hugs, and kisses before bedtime. A gorgeous blue blackness envelops the girl's thoughts as she spins some pictures of her day with Mama and dreams of another tomorrow. Endpapers identify the 15 items, both large and small, that are shown in the story. A warm tribute to a special family relationship and comforting home."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Told from a first-person point of view, this quietly engaging picture book unfolds on a rainy morning, with a Black girl who "want to/ be everywhere Mama is." Waking up before Papa and younger sibling Luca, the girl narrates aspects of the mother and daughter's morning routine ("A shower is warm rain that gets you going"), comparing their respective cups and toothbrushes, oatmeal with toppings, and rain boots. Sensory details, fittingly tangential childlike observations, and familial dialogue make the narrative feel immediate and genuine ("I don't like the bumblebee barrette, I say..../ She knows I mean just today"). Cabrera's striking acrylic visuals recall painters such as Jordan Casteel and Maira Kalman. While a few of the girl's lines feel nebulously philosophical ("Some things don't let go. But for what?/ The stores are boxes filled with people"), the narrative offers an elegant testament to the love-filled bonds between child and parent. Ages 4--8. (Aug.)"
