My Mom Has X-ray Vision review

My Mom Has X-ray Vision

Matthew's mom is just like all the other moms. She has ordinary hair, ordinary clothes, and a nice smile. Matthew's mom is just like all the other moms . . . EXCEPT she has X-RAY VISION! How else could she always know what Matthew is up to? She knows when he jumps on the bed, or when he uses her pots and pans outside, and she even knows when he is wrestling with sea monsters in the bathtub! Matthew is sure his mom can see through things 4-7just like a superhero! One day... he decides to test his theory. (goodreads summary)

How do moms know what is going on when they are not in the same room? I'm sure this question has been asked many times by children and here is a simple and funny story that kids will laugh to. The illustrations are bold and colorful with cute characters.  Children will enjoy the funny details to look at throughout the book. Even after reading it a second time, I still found some silly new thing I missed the first time.  The front and back inside covers are fun to read while they describe Matthews ordinary mom to a Superhero mom.  I think this is a "just right book" for ages 4-7.~

  1. So glad you enjoyed this story, Christy. We are big fans of the author/illustrator Alex T. Smith. His humor and his voice are "just right" for his young audience.
