There’s Just Something About a Boy, by Jenny Lee Sulpizio, is a sweet look about that special mother/son relationship: the excitement of finding out that he is on his way, all the stuff he gets into (!), the hopes and dreams mom and dad have for him, and all the times mom stands up as his biggest cheer leader.

The beautiful illustrations by Peg Lozier capture both the humorous and touching moments of life with boys. I especially love the picture that shows him being caught drawing on the walls – though I’ve only caught my daughter in that trick. My son drew on the dinning room chair instead!

The rhyming in the book is a bit sing-songy, but the images the rhymes evoke are precious.

There’s Just Something About a Boy will make a beautiful shower gift for a momma expecting her first son.

Rating: ★★★½☆
