"As refreshing as a double cone of Swensen's ice cream, "Mother-Daughter Days on Russian Hill"-beautifully illustrated in graceful watercolor by emerging artist Amber Rae Malott-follows the path of Barbara and Bree as they create special moments together. Tag along to discover the most enduring truth of motherhood: the time we have with our children is more precious than we can ever know, but making memories together builds a lifetime of love. Let Barbara and Bree show you how to do it!" - Carol Evans, founder, Working Mother magazine

" In an exquisitely rendered illustrated book, Barbara Bella glows with joy as she sensitively reveals the different phases of her rapport with her daughter from the moment of childbirth into maturity as they explore their neighborhood, Russian Hill in San Francisco. Quite in evidence is her story-telling skill, and once you have read the rhyming verse, it will keep you enthralled until the last page and beyond.

The match of the book's subject and Amber Rae Malott's creative and remarkably expressive color palette is delicious. She possesses a solid understanding of the author's intentions that is evident in the delicate, detailed whimsical figures and the original urban sketches." -Norm Goldman, editor and publisher, Bookpleasures

"In her warm and wonderful rhyming debut picture book, "Mother-Daughter Days on Russian Hill", Barbara Bella pulls on the heart strings remembering the many precious, tender and fun moments she shared with her daughter growing up. Bella successfully touches on the universal themes any parent in any era can relate to, while illustrator Amber Rae Malott's gorgeous watercolors invite the reader into Bella's world of the charming San Francisco neighborhood. A great read aloud for ages 3-8." -Barry Wittenstein, 2020 winner of the Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children.
