American Mom by Meredith Hale

American Mom is a fantastic read! It’s full of history and the roles that women have played throughout the years portrayed in magazines, ads, cartoons, television, music, film, and more.

This lavishly illustrated book goes decade by decade, covering everything from the origins of Mother’s Day in the nineteenth century to the courage and sacrifice of wartime moms;
from sitcom moms who vacuumed in pearls and heels to moms who broke rules and led protests; from ’80s Supermoms to today’s moms, who juggle work and family life, and turn to social media to help keep it all together.
These captivating images and messages paint a story of an evolving America—and of the fierce, adaptable American woman. Filled with inspirational quotes, vintage ads, iconic artwork, fun facts, and famous moms,
AMERICAN MOM is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, baby showers, anniversaries, and more!

I truly enjoyed reading this book. While there were many things about some of the iconic women featured that I had already known, there were some things that I learned. Every woman I could think of was featured in this book; from June Cleaver to Roseanne and Morticia Addams to Barbara Bush.
It was really interesting to see – visually – the progress over the years and how the roles of women have changed within society. The book, although full of facts and history, is not overly wordy and kept me captivated wanting to learn more.
American Mom is available to purchase wherever books are sold and online from Amazon.com.
