There was a day this Summer where the kids and I trekked out to our local bookstore to waste the day away. My children love to read and were excited to hang out and look at all the books that are available. My daughter ran across one in particular called My Granny’s Purse. After looking at it I thought it was just he cutest little book, but was a little jealous that Granny would get her own purse shaped book and there was not one book shaped like Mommy’s purse, uh, er.. diaper bag, tote, anything!
I must admit ever since having kids I usually carry a rather large tote. I have to fit EVERYTHING in there like my iPod, digital camera, diapers, wipes, fruit snacks, cell phone, laptop, books, toys, sippy cups, extra clothes, wallet, make-up, calculator.. you name it, I probably have it.
It’s really funny because when I saw My Mommy’s Tote online I had to let out a little chuckle when I remembered my thoughts on that Summer Day in the bookstore. Us Mom’s FINALLY have our own book shaped as a bag! Yay!
We were really excited for the opportunity to receive this book from Parent Reviewers and were immediately impressed. It is, indeed, a book, but it’s in the shaped of “tote”. With each turn of the page you find “something” Momma would carry in her own tote. I laughed quite a bit because it even included a laptop, something essential to us bloggers.
One of my favorite pages included a dry erase board complete with marker for notes. What a great activity when waiting at a restaurant or Doctor’s office! One thing I wasn’t too excited about was the few items that could be easily lost like a credit card. Other than that, the whole book could be compared to a board game. There are pop up flaps for different surprises. Lastly, there is a strap to carry just like Mommy does with her tote.
