Tough Like Mum by Lana Button
Illustrated by Carmen Mok
Kim and her mum are tough. Everyone in town says so. But Kim is learning that sometimes toughness doesn't look like what you'd expect.
In this tender mother-daughter story about family hardship, vulnerability and love, Kim and her mum learn that truly being tough can mean a willingness to show vulnerability and accept help.
