Mum Goes to Work

Libby Gleeson, Leila Rudge

A beautiful new edition of a groundbreaking book by award-winning author Libby Gleeson, this is a heart-warming look at the busy days of working mums and their pre-schoolers. It’s early morning and everyone is arriving at the noisy childcare centre. Mum is going to work - Bye, Mum! But what do mums do all day at work? And are the children as busy as their mummys?

With adorable artwork from illustrator Leila Rudge, this is a fun and reasurring read for working mothers to share with their little ones.


Originally published in 1992, Mum Goes To Work has been updated and re-illustrated for this new edition, and it’s absolutely adorable. The text is simple and engaging but the real treats here are the illustrations by Leila Rudge.

At first glance they seem just the normal (yet lovely) illustrations of the actions contained in the text, but upon closer inspection more and more storylines are revealed that complement the main, and beautifully inclusive, depiction of the mums’ days.
