Mrs. Large gets up in the morning to find her three children wreaking havoc on the house. She decides that she just needs five minutes of peace away from them---but with three small children that is seemingly impossible. Adorable illustrations are appealing to kids and sturdy board book pages make this book just right to be handled by small hands.
All Mrs. Large wants is five minutes' peace from her energetic children, so she heads to the bathtub for some well-deserved quiet time. But the kids want Mom to join in their fun, so they follow her wherever she goes!
With a relatable dilemma and hilarious art, Five Minutes' Peace is a favorite among moms, and this new format will make it the perfect baby gift.
