Copycat! Oh, My! Oh, No! by Lisa Charrier.
ONE DAY I SEE MOMMY DRINKING SOME COFFEE.
I GO TO DRINK OUT OF IT, TOO.
"OH, MY, OH, NO! YOU DON'T DRINK THAT, SWEETIE!
IT ISN'T GOOD! IT'S COFFEE!
BUT IF IT ISN'T GOOD, WHY DOES SHE DRINK IT?
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but Mommy doesn't quite get that.
When her mommy emerges from the bathroom, all coiffed and beautifully made-up, her daughter slips in there and tries out all of her mother's cosmetics on herself! She thinks she looks as gorgeous as Mommy.
"OH, MY! OH, NOOOO!"
Mommy is appalled, scrubs her little daughter's face, and grumbles over the mess on the dressing table.
When Mommy mops the floors, leaving them all shiny clean, her daughter decides to do the same for another room.
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING? THERE'S WATER EVERYWHERE!"
Mom doesn't get it when she makes a delicious chocolate cake and presents her daughter with the first slice, only to watch her give it to the cat.
"DOESN'T MOMMY KNOW KITTY-CAT IS HUNGRY?"
Maybe Mommy is just too tall to see it her way, the girl thinks. It's all in the point of view, in Lisa Charrier's Oh My, Oh No! (RP Kids, 2014). The cat and an observant mouse follow mother and child through the day, as the daughter tries to follow her mother's example, with humorous outcomes. Even preschoolers will see the difference between Mommy's results and her daughter's and appreciate the admiration behind her efforts, if not the actual efforts, as indeed Mom does at last.
