“Mama I’ll Give You the World” is a heartwarming story about a young girl who wants to make her mother dance and smile again. The book talks about a hard working mother and her daughter who are coping with the loss of the father. Her mother works at a beauty salon all day and does not smile or dance like she used to when her husband was around. The young daughter then took it to her responsibility to put together a surprise birthday party for her mother to make her happy again. The illustrations were absolutely stunning. It completes the story and I could not help, but smile when I saw the look on the mother’s face when she arrived at the party. This story shows children that even the simplest act can make a difference in a person’s life. This is a touching story that shows the tremendous amount of love a daughter has for her mother. Truly a great read! ( )

For one magical night, Luisa wants to make her single mother's worries disappear.

Every day after school Luisa goes to Walter's World of Beauty to watch her mama work-- cutting, coloring, and curling customer's hair, transforming them into the images of their dreams. Mama works hard and hardly ever smiles, but when she does, she is the prettiest flower in all the World. At the end of each day, she puts her tip money in a special envelopes for Luisa-- the envelope marked "college." She wants to give her daughter the world-- but Luisa has plans of her own. It's Mama's birthday and, for one night, she wants to make Mama smile... the way she smiles in an old photograph of her dancing at a place called Roseland. So Luisa transforms Walter's World of Beauty into Roseland, by decorating it with roses and collages of Mama's customers, who are also in on Luisa's secret. And it isn't long before everyone is happily dancing, especially Mama, who is the happiest of all.
