Take Your Mama To Work Today--March 2012

Written by Amy Reichert, illustrated by Alexandra Boiger (yes, it's me!) and published by Atheneum Books.

Coworkers beware—Violet’s here to “help” at the office in this lively picture book that puts a fun-loving spin on the grown-up work world.When Violet visits her mom’s office on Take Your Child to Work Day (or snow days, or school holidays, or babysitter-is-sick days), she is very helpful. She answers the phone (once she stops accidentally hanging up on people!), makes business cards (after adding a snazzy personal touch!), learns how to use the paper shredder (and discovers how to make her very own confetti!), and gives the boss pointers on his presentation. With a little mayhem—and a lot of joy—Violet makes her mark on the office!
