About Mom's Not Books

How do you get your kids to “level it up” and take ownership of their own responsibilities… without being the “mean mom?”


Easy! You read the “Mom’s Not…” book series with them. These stories are so much fun for kids and parents to read together. Full of sharp, witty humor, the series captivates kids with joyful storytelling so that the message of “do-it-yourself, kid!” can be easily digested.

Setting Expectations

We are raising strong kids who, with our guidance, are expected to take personal responsibility and make good decisions. When those things happen, their self-confidence grows. Responsibility is great for kids! But sometimes those first steps toward independence need a little motivation.

Taking Care of Business

Starting with Mom’s Not Wipin’ Your Bum, go on the imaginative journey of our main boy and see him triumphantly take charge of his own ability to *ahem* clean his behind. It’s the stepping stone in a long list of things he “can do!” Woven into the story is helpful hints from mom filled with positivity and encouragement.

Bright Colors, Active Illustrations

Artist Stevie Mahardhika's colorful and active illustrations reveal a “story-within-a-story” surprise. Readers join a little boy and his stuffed rabbit as they contemplate their relationships with the porcelain throne. Filled with whimsical imagery and wry humor, the story simultaneously captivates kids and offers a knowing wink to their parents.
