A Day with Mom is about Julia, a precocious 7-year-old girl, who loves spending time with her mom. During their day together, they have Julia's favorite breakfast, explore a book fair, and shop at the mall. Along the way, they experience a few surprises that neither of them was expecting. Join Julia and her mom as they find joy in the simplicity of daily life.
A Day with Mom hopes to showcase the beauty of spending quality time and making memories. When shopping for diverse children's books, Sydney struggled to find one that showed everyday life. The events in the story are loosely based on the experience and memories that the authors have created over the years. In their debut book, Sydney and Pearl wanted to showcase how enjoying the simplicity of daily living can create opportunities to bond as a family. This mother daughter duo pulled from their own experiences and memories. This book is intended for ages 3 and up.
"Sydney and Pearl beautifully capture the shared experiences of the everyday Black family, including the nostalgia of getting your hair done by your mother on a Saturday morning, and the simple joys of going to a book fair and going shopping. Julia is so many of us."
