All Moms Work explores and illustrates the concept that all moms are working moms whether they stay at home, work outside the home, or do a combination of both. So much of the unpaid labor in our society falls on a mom’s to-do list, and because the work is unpaid, it often goes unnoticed. This book was written so children would learn about and appreciate all of the work moms do. So let’s show our children and families all of the amazing things moms do in our world.
