Mama Zooms is about a little boy and his mom. The little boy describes all of the fun him and his mother have. His mom is in a wheelchair, and he tells stories of him riding in her lap. He loves being in his mom's lap and together they go on adventures. ( )

A young boy truly sees the positive side of his mother being in a wheel chair. He loves zooming with her throughout all of their daily activities, but especially when they are all bundled up for bed. This book should be read because it shows how successful the mother is of raising her son and it shows the positive aspect of the mother being in a wheelchair. The one thing that truly caught my eye was the way the author showed the reader how the mother was still supportive of her son even though she was in a wheelchair. For example. "Mama zooms me through a dark hall and she's my train in a tunnel." This book truly showed me the positive side of a mother being in a wheelchair. ( )

Jane Cowen-Fletcher's book is about a mother who is in a wheelchair. This story follows a boys point of view of how he sees his and his mothers adventures while riding on her lap. This is a good book for children to see how different people get around. ( )

The best thing about this book is that it's just a great story about a mother and a son sharing time together. Everyone can enjoy it, whether or not they use a wheelchair or know someone with a disability. The art is so joyful, lovely, and evocative of the child's imagination. And it's based on a real family!
