SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (PRWeb) December 12, 2006 — For all those toddlers with mothers confined to bed for one reason or another, this charming book will soften the difficulty. Annette Rivlin-Gutman’s message in Mommy Has to Stay in Bed is positive and uplifting, the rhythm lilting and soothing. Hearing the message through the voice of the child adds to the feeling that, bedridden or not, her mother is still positive, loving and devoted to her happiness.

Author Rivlin-Gutman’s use of phrasing makes this little book especially appealing. We play cards, tell jokes, and watch a video or two. We draw pretty pictures of all the things we like to do is a reminder that, even when being confined to bed, a mother is still able to share joyful and loving moments with her child.

Whether a mother is sick or recovering, it’s important that she continue to affirm her important role in her child’s daily life. At the same time, it’s imperative that she acknowledge her child’s feelings. Told through the eyes of the child, Mommy Has to Stay in Bed succeeds very well in conveying these messages.

This important book is designed to help mother and child through difficult, and sometimes traumatic, circumstances. The author hopes her writing will also help provide support for parents challenged with long-term illnesses.
