Where’s My Mummy-book review

Halloween is right around the corner so I collected all the themed books so I can read them to the kids and get them into the fall and trick or treating spirit. I was recently sent a new book, Where’s My Mummy by Carolyn Crimi.

This is a sweet story about a little mummy who doesn’t want to go to bed so instead decides to play one more game of hide and shriek with his Mummy. Baby Mummy winds up getting lost instead and is told by not so scary Halloween-y characters such as Bones and Drac to just go to bed. It isn’t until a mouse peeks out from a tree that baby Mummy gets scared but his Mummy is right there to comfort him.

The story is well written and perfect for reading aloud with phrases like Clank Clink Clank and Tromp Tromp Tromp. The illustrations are eye-catching and inviting and colorful thanks to John Manders. This book is recommended for ages 4-8 but Shae sat and listened just as easily as Shaun. Any child who loves books and stories is going to love this one. Halloween is quickly approaching purchase your own copy at Barnes & Noble or other local bookstores for approximately $8.

Dad’s Perspective: This is a cute book that I like to read to Shae because she likes to hide and jump out and say “Boo”. This is her new thing then she says “Boo Me Daddy” to get me to jump out and scare her. This book is a fun read.

    Sounds like a cute book. I think my daughter would love it.

  3. Keegan is looking at this with me and saying Wheres my Mummy? He loves this book. We've been reading it since he was … 2? I know since last Halloween.

    The author has a new book out about a rabbit and pirates, I think. I need to go to the store and look for it.

    Also, if you want another fun "Halloween" book – there is a book called Monster Mess. It's about a Monster that cleans when everyone goes to bed. (We wish). But there are fun sounds and movements you can do as the Monster Peeks Peeks under the bed or Yawns Yawns or Eeks Eeks. Just a lot of fun repetition. Keeg loves that one too.

    I think this is the book my son was talking about from pre-school! He said, "No mom, it wasn't a MOMMY it was a MUMMY!" LOL

    I love holiday themed books. It is so fun to drag out the seasonal books and movies, to get you in the mood for celebrating said holiday. This little mummy is adorable and yes, that would definitely get us in the mood for Halloween. Great review.
