Sew Buttons On Your Underwear

A quirky look at the everyday quips moms tell their
children, Sew Buttons On Your Underwear is a
delightful romp through one girl’s experience growing
up in Chicago. Cathy Sue chronicles her mother’s wit
and wisdom with a smart, contemporary point of
view. This wonderful collection of motherly antidotes
is whimsically illustrated by Janet Arvia. And adorned
with personal photos from a memorable era.

Sew Buttons On Your Underwear is a nostalgic look
the ‘70’s before the internet and video games
influenced children. Every page is another nugget of
insight as only a mother could deliver. No mater
where you grew up, there was a mother who softly
uttered. “Sew Buttons On Your Underwear.”
“This is a perfect gift book for a new
mom or mom to be.”  

“A great gift for mother’s day that can
be personalized too.”  
A book by Cathy Sue Carpenter
and illustrated by Janet Arvia
