Today is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. The program is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with the theme “Build Opportunity: 20 Years of Education, Empowerment, Experience.”

The new picture book, Take Your Mama to work Today, by Amy Reichert is the perspective of one little girl who visits her mother’s office for the day and “helps out.” The results are both sweet and funny. The pictures by Alexandra Boiger do a great job of capturing the innocence of Violet’s attempts to help and the exasperation of the adults around her.
