Mommy and Daddy Work to Make Some Dough by Jennifer Lynn Pereyra (Review and Giveaway)


And, the winner is:


28 pages - $9.99 (paperback) 


Rebeca doesn't want her parents to leave every day. But then Mommy explains why she and Daddy must go, to make a living and provide for their girls. Young children will love the fanciful rhymes and find reassurance when they understand why Mommy and Daddy Work to Make Some Dough. Jennifer Pereyra's charming tale is an excellent story for the children of working parents. 

This is an eLIVE book, meaning each printed copy contains a special code redeemable for the free download of the audio version of the book. 

My Review:
I just loved this book.  Even though Savannah is still too young and doesn't understand why her Daddy leaves during the day, and Mommy spends evenings on the computer working, this will be a great book to share with her down the road.  I haven't seen another book like this on the market, and am happy to see a mom entrepreneur take the initiative and write a book that will help parents explain why parents leave them at daycare, with a babysitter or with family during the day.  If your children ever wonder what you do every day when it comes to work and you had trouble explaining the need to work to pay for expenses, etc., then this is the book for you.

About the Author -- 
(I will be featuring Jennifer as a Spotlight Mommy in a couple of weeks, so check back for my interview with her)

Jennifer Pereyra has sought balance between her career and home life. While earning her B. A. from Lake Forest College, Jennifer studied in Madrid, where she met her husband, Ignacio. They are now raising their daughters in New Jersey. 

Disclosure:  I was given a copy of this book in order to write an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.


  1. as cammy gets older, she is starting to have a harder time when i leave her for work every morning. i simply tell her the quicker i can leave for work, the quicker i can come home to be with her and her brother. i also tell her that going to work is how i earn my allowance, just like her "chores" are how she earns her allowance (the fact that she comes to my office every so often helps her to understand).

  2. My daughter Lilly loves school so I draw a parallel for her...."Lilly gets to go to school and mommy gets to go to work. We both get to have fun, learn a lot and get rewards for our efforts." As she gets older we'll start adding the money element to it. I'm fortunate that she loves school so much so she rarely gets upset when I drop her off - but when she does all the working mommy guilt comes rushing in. Deep down I know I'm setting a good example for her but there are days when I cave and take the morning off to have extra snuggle time with her.
