What is the bond that a mother shares with her children? It’s intangible, inexpressible yet something that defines their relationship for life. Pooja Sardana tackles this theme of love and responsibility in her simple yet profound picture book “I love You Mommy”.
Beautifully hand illustrated by Pooja herself, the book takes a normal day in the life of a mom and her son, to tell a complex story about the nature of love and the meaning of responsibility. A mother’s job is never easy. The bond that she shares with her child for nine months is never severed for the rest of her life. Mothers all around the world work selflessly day and night to give their kids the best they can. Whether it is working mothers or those who chose to stay at home, their lives are defined by their children.
Pooja, whose love for kids made her chose a career in education, was very aware of her responsibilities when she had Aman, “I wanted to teach him about all that is beautiful about life. There are so many adverse influences that children have today – from popular films to television and internet. I have seen children who are jaded so early in life and I wanted to ensure that Aman learns about the small joys of life. I looked for books that could help me but they were too few and far in between. That’s how I started making books for him about the small ways in which one can make such a difference in the world, starting with our immediate friends and family.”
Told from the perspective of the little kid, the book uses simple rhymes and repetition to tell a moving story about how the son realizes that love is also about caring and looking out for each other. This emotional book, written from the heart is bound to resonate with parents all around the world.
