David’s mother is coming to David’s class to tell them about her job. David is happy, but also concerned; will she embarrass him by telling silly jokes, calling him “Pumpkin,” or showing baby pictures? As they make their way to school, David grows more and more worried; his mother teases him, offering little reassurance. For no apparent reason, David realizes his fears are groundless, and that he’s just plain proud of his mother. This sweet story with a heartfelt theme has moments that are amusing and recognizable; Johnson’s paintings of the neighborhood occasionally lack energy, but convey the affection between mother and son and the sentiments of the story. (Picture book. 4-8)
