Mum Is Just A Name is the first published book by Lisa Almond, who, as well as writing children's books, works as an education IT manager. Having always loved writing, particularly poems, Lisa's dream was always to write professionally. She lives in Runcorn, Cheshire with her husband, twin daughters and her two dogs.
What makes a mum? Someone who loves and listens to you? Who picks you up when you fall over, and loves you unconditionally? But 'mums' also come in the shape of a dad, a nana or maybe a carer. Mum is Just a Name is the beautiful story of Ronnie, a loving, caring boy who starts school, finding it sometimes difficult to leave his mum. With each new friend he makes, he learns that not all families are the same as his. Join Ronnie, as he discovers that love comes from lots of different people around you, not just mums.
