"We Help Mommy" is a story of young children helping their mother with daily tasks. The children help put on their own clothing and helping make mommy's bed. This story implies that all of the jobs explained in the story are things that mothers have to do. These jobs include cooking, cleaning, and caring for the children. The father goes to work in beginning of the story, not helping with any of the house work. This is typical of children's literature to have this pattern of gender roles. The illustrations in the book are drawn in color. ( )

Eloise Burns Wilkin is my favorite illustrator. This is the first book I remember looking at as a child. When my son was little I bought another copy; the pictures brought back happy memories. ( )
