Lifting and carrying around their children can help mommies get strong. But some mommies go a bit further to develop strength.
In their book, Strong Like Mommy, authors Rosalie and Robert Santoro tell the story of a young boy who enjoys watching his mother work out at the gym. He sees all she does and wants to be just like her. He watches her throw, swing, row, run, bike, jump, lift, flip a big tire, and stand on her hands right before his eyes. She sets an example of what strong looks like and shows him what it means to always persevere.
Told in verse, Strong Like Mommy will be enjoyed by children of many ages. And while it reflects what the Santoros do with their children, it might even inspire your parents to take you along to a workout.
