Book Review: Mom Says You Need to be Strong by Aditi Gupta

 A mother is the backbone of a child who teaches kids the valuable lessons of life. The role of a mother in raising the child is very crucial as the learnings she imparts to the child are ingrained deep in the child's mind.

Today, we bring you from our bookshelf "Mom Says You Need to Be Strong," which speaks about the lessons from a mother to her children irrespective of age. A teenager finds solace in a mom; a toddler needs the cuddle from the mom to feel safe, and youngsters search for answers for their indecisive minds in their mom. So, mom is there for all, irrespective of what age you grow. 

Book Cover:

The cover is simple and colorful, and the title is camouflaged in a loop, making it difficult to make out the title of the book, while standing among various shades showcases that one can get out of any indecisive circle once a person holds mother's hand.

Mom Says You Need to Be Strong:

This message in the book is loud and clear; the author has highlighted the learnings imparted from a mother in short stories. The stories are very much relatable to day-to-day life and reverberate in the mind for a long. While a woman takes center stage in this book, the narratives within this book delve into the profound themes of love, loss, resentment, and hope.
