Kid Konnection

Title: My Mommy Hung the Moon
Author: Jamie Lee Curtis
Illustrator: Laura Cornell

Summary: My Mommy Hung the Moon is a delightful read about mothers' love for their children. Through this love, mothers are capable of doing many things: carpooling, quieting thunder storms, cooking and baking, reading and writing books and healing the sick. It's an excellent book celebrating mothers.

Title: Late for School
Author: Steve Martin
Illustrator: C. F. Payne

Summary: Late for School is an entertaining read of a boy's determination to not be late for school. You see, he's been late many, many times before. His parents and teachers are upset that he's always late for school. Oh, but this time. . . he will be on time. There's just one tiny problem. . . is he really late for school?

Every Saturday, Julie at Booking Mama, hosts Kid Konnection - a weekly feature that highlights anything related to children's books (picture, middle-school and young adult). Have a post you would like to share? It's easy, simply visit Booking Mama to add your link.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing. I think it's cute that both of your books are written by celebrities who have proven themselves as very good writers.

  2. Both these books sound great. I had read about Steve Martin's book, and since my kids struggle not to be late every day (they start school at 7:45 am) I think they would enjoy it.

  3. I need to get Late for School for my son. He's already gotten a note from his vice principal.
