Sam I Am Gets a Nip Tuck

Soon to be released is a new plastic surgery book for children.

According to Newsweek: "My Beautiful Mommy" aims to reassure kids that Mom's bruises and bandages are just temporary, and the new improved mommy won't be different, just 'prettier'.

I don't think there's been another kids book that so positively builds up a child's body image and self-esteem since "Janey Gets Boobs for Christmas", "1-2-3. Be Thin Like Me" and the popular John Holmes board book for boys "You're born with a Ding. I'm born with a Dong."

My Beautiful Mommy is available from Big Tent Books.
