My mom is really busy Mom can do a thousand things at the same time.

"Yes, hello? No, I'm alright, Francine. Hold on two seconds. Maggie, put your feet on the floor. Ethan, play with something else."
"Bye honey, have a good day..."
"I'll call you back later, Francine . . . "

But sometimes, Mom says time flies by too fast. So Mom finds the time to be just with us

Maggie and Ethan's mom has a busy schedule filled with packing lunches, carpools, and work emails. When Maggie and Ethan seem to be growing up too quickly, their mom slows time down with a tickle fight, watching the clouds float by, or taking a family walk in the woods.

Sometimes a busy schedule can get overwhelming and waylay a parent's best intentions for dedicated family time. Mom's Busy Days is a sweet story that explains to children that while parents have a lot to do, even the busiest families can find time to savor those little moments and special time together.

A Note to Parents and Caregivers by Julia Martin Burch, PhD, provides strategies for creating and savoring family time amid a busy schedule.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
