What is one super power you wish you had? I know I have said on more than one occasion that I would have more than 2 arms. Whether it was to catch babies running away, cleaning dishes while putting on makeup, making dinner while scrapbooking….the list goes on and on. Well, I found a book that my kids (and I) enjoy reading together. I actually find myself daydreaming about what I could get done if I had more than 2 arms! The book If Mom Had Three Arms is an adorable picture book.

Every day, all around the world, children hear their moms tell them that they only have 2 arms (and can only do so much with those 2 arms at one time). One little boy has a brilliant idea – what if his mom had more than 2 arms? What could she do with many arms she has? Collect more Halloween candy, cook up tons of pancakes, hold umbrellas over everyone’s heads? He’ll discover just how special a mom with two arms can be! You can purchase this book for $14.95 in hardcover.

3 lucky readers from The Mommy-Files are going to win their own hardcover copy of the children’s picture book If Mom Had Three Arms.
