Book Review: 30 Things My Mum Taught Me

30 Things My Mum Taught Me 30 Things My Mum Taught Me by Denis and Ian Baker (Jane Curry Publishing)
PB RRP $24.99
ISBN 9780987227508
Reviewed by Vicki Stanton

Just in time for Mother's Day, 30 Things My Mum Taught Me  is a heart-warming (and at times tear jerking) book of cherished memories, words of wisdom and stories of Dorothy Josephine Mitchell, the mother of the authors. However, the book is more than a homage from sons to their mum. It is a celebration of all mothers and the joy and guidance they bring to the world as women, wives and mothers.

Reflections on family life are at the heart of this book. Throughout the book there are pages where readers can add their thoughts about their own mother. The Bakers have also included some of their mother's recipes (I particularly like the look of the recipe for lamb shanks) and there is space provided to record personal recipes.

30 Things My Mum Taught Me is the companion book to the previously released 30 Things My Dad Taught Me (You can read the Buzz Words Books review here.)
