The Good, the Bad, and the PSLE.

In this book written by Monica Lim (Secrets of Singapore, Danger Dan and Gadget Girl), we meet Ling, a typical Singaporean mum has made it her goal in life to help her children succeed in school.  Ling records her parenting journey, which involves doing crazy worksheets, dealing with assessment book overload and jittery parent-teacher meetings that will have you laughing and give you serious food for thought, too.

I’m Not Perfect, I’m a Mom.

Most motherhood books tell you how to be the perfect mom and how to raise the perfect kid. This book is not like that.

Written by Jasmine Han and Shelly Holly, I’m Not Perfect. I’m A Mom is a collection of light-hearted — and true — stories about the bizarre experience of motherhood. From dealing with pregnancy to dealing with public tantrums to trying not to strangle hubby while he is trying to be “helpful”, this book is a must-read for all mothers.


Mum Is Where The Heart Is.

In this memoir, Cultural Medallion winner You Jin employs her wry, inimitable style as she looks what it means to be a mum.

This book is filled with You Jin's usual wit, warmth and candour, as she bares her deepest emotions that have grown out of her personal observations and everyday experiences of life as a mother.


Sushi and Tapas.

Twenty-five women from around the world delight, shock and surprise with real-life experiences about everything, from feeling fat to being free-spirited to being a mother … in other words — being a modern woman. 

Edited by Singaporean Neo Gim Huay, and Dominican Pepukaye Bardouille, with a foreword by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark, Sushi and Tapas will leave you laughing and crying for more.


Mum’s Not Cooking.

Sometimes, nothing that says “thank you, mum” better than a nice meal that you’ve prepared for her.

Singaporean Denise Fletcher, who used to be a chef in SATS Catering and owned a restaurant, shares her favourite local dishes that are easy to do, such as sweet and sour pork, sambal kangkong, Easy Peasy Briyani and Denise's 2-minute Chocolate Chip Mug Cake.
