Hats Off To Mother

This is a little book I made using PDDU, EDPD and Indie Art and based on a poem I had saved from years ago.
Here is the poem (I changed some of the original lines to fit the project):

Hats Off to Mother
My mother’s job is sometimes hard, and I have heard her say,
"The hours are long, and if I could, I’d like to change the pay."
Her profession has variety, and I will tell you now
About the many hats she wears—and why and when and how.

My mother’s a nurse who fixes and patches
All of my hurts and my sores and my scratches.

My mother’s a chef who fixes each dinner
Fit for a king—a blue-ribbon winner!

My mother’s a chauffeur who drives pretty slow
But gets me to places where I need to go.

My mother’s a detective, and no one is greater
At getting the truth from me sooner or later.

My mother’s a gardener and works really hard,
Planting and weeding and grooming our yard.

My mother’s a maid, at least that’s what she said
‘Cause she cleans up the house and makes every bed.

My mother is truly my biggest fan,
No matter what, she’s always in the stand.

My mother’s a queen—an angel in disguise—
Who teaches grace and dignity, with tears in her eyes.

Today take these hats off, and please wear no other.
Let me do your work, because I LOVE YOU, MOTHER!


  1. This is wonderful. Nice job!

  2. Cute idea. I wish the clickable pictures were larger. It's hard to make out what everything is.

  3. Oh my goodness this is so fabulous! So creative!
