I received an email pitch last month from the author of The Wonders of Mother’s Milk asking whether I am interested in reviewing her book which has recently been made available in digital formats (iBookstore and Kindle). I checked out Mishawn Purnell-O’Neal book on Amazon.com for more information, and decided I have to review it, simply because this book is about breastfeeding, and the wonders of it!
I am very very passionate about anything related to breastfeeding. As a mother of two kids, I am still breastfeeding my 41 months old boy and 11 months old girl. So, yes, with anything related to breastfeeding, I am in!
With that in mind, I have to say that I love this book! The illustrations are easy to the eye, this book is not too long-winded nor too short to make a statement! I love the paragraphs’ rhymes. Furthermore, the book is easy to read while still being able to deliver its points about breastfeeding–how it benefits our little ones, how different mothers breastfeed and nourish their child, and how children from different ages can still enjoys the benefits of breastfeeding. I just love the last page on this book where it says,
“So when you see a mother giving her baby her milk,
don’t stare, instead give her a smile. And know that
she’s is giving the best gift that she can give to her
The Wonders of Mother’s Milk deserves more publicity and awareness. As a person who is passionate about breastfeeding matters, I hope that one day breastfeeding will be more accepted, and I hope this book will be able to impact and affect the lives of whomever lucky enough to read it! Simply love love love this book!
