When Maxine wakes up on the wrong side of the bed one morning, she wonders if the problem might be her mother. What if she could try out a new mom who doesn't make her brush her teeth or comb her hair? Enlisting Mom to help her with her search, Maxine embarks on interviewing various prospects to be her new mother at the park, the toy store, and the zoo. Unfortunately, these other mothers present a new host of problems or concerns. Maybe her 'old mother' was the best mother she could have? For every child who's ever wondered if the grass is greener, If You Were My Mother affirms that there's nothing better than your own mother's love.
